      some more info re the router:

      What you get:

      * Sky branded (white) Netgear router
      * Phone and ethernet cables (x1)
      * Microfilters (x3)
      * Install CD
      * Setup guide booklet
      You can change SSID, network key, channel etc.

      It is certainly using custom firmware for Sky as evidenced by a "Sky test" button on one of the screens.
      The DG834G gives you instant connectivity with or without wires, and works with your existing 802.11b devices as well as your new 54 Mbps 802.11g devices. A built-in ADSL2+ modem furnishes direct, always-on Internet connectivity and multi-user access sharing at downstream speeds of up to 24 Mbps. This powerful router distributes MP3s, digital movies and photos with ultra-fast 10/100 switched LAN ports capable of speeds of 200 Mbps, and shares a single IP address with up to 253 users.

      Hassle Free
      No need for a separate modem – this connects directly into your ADSL line. Built-in Port Forwarding settings, Universal Plug and Play (UPnP™) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) pass-through make it simple to play Internet games, send instant messages, and host Internet services. User interface matches your local language (English, French, German or Italian). It supports PCs, Macintosh®, and virtually all Ethernet devices, and comes with a free Ethernet cable for connecting your first computer.

      Secure
      Double Firewall using Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and Intrusion Control features Denial of Service protection from hacker attacks, while VPN (Virtual Private Network) pass-through permits secure access to your office or corporate network and enables you to host VPN services. Content filtering lets you control access to inappropriate web sites and limit usage by time of day. Logs browsing activities and provides optional e-mail alerts so you can monitor access. DMZ support allows unrestricted access from the Internet to one computer (for hosting web services).

      Does seem a bit odd that...means it won't work 'out of the box' for some people, especially those with older PC's.

      Sort it out Sky, it won't cost you that much

      the snag is, unless peeps have a network card, they a bit stuffed. Although most pc's from about the past 3 and a half years will have one.

      I wonder if they ask the customer as part of the signup process?

      If not they should do

      Getting a bit confused here chaps. Will Sky be dishing out (excuse pun) the
      DG834GT or the DG834G. Reason I ask is because I already have a DG834G and was hoping that I could get Sky to waive the 40 quid or so Connection/Application fee as I dont need their router.
