      Re: Can I use a friends (SKY) router?

      NewsreadeR,
      I came from v21/Biscit/Breathe so I am greatful for any kind of connection. That said, my router has syncronised with the exchange at 8Meg but I am only getting 2Meg download speeds (Saturday afternoon). What is the favoured speed test here?

      If the routers are not assiociated with your account details, I am even more annoyed that it takes so long to provide replacments!

      You are very right The only thing that bothers me is the amount of people who use it. Seldom less than 60 or 70 signed in, I think if all the Sky users knew about it, it would be overwhelmed, so don't spread the word too wide

      Seriously, I shudder to think what would have happened if NewsReader and Satdish had not founded it. I think we all owe them a big vote of thanks.
