i have two sky routers - as the first one i got was faulty, wireless kept dropping out, second one has exact same problems. same problems as evryone else, well documented.

given that the poor wireless performance from the sky router is believed by some to be caused by the firmware - as the netgear out of the box router works fine - would it be possible to flash my old sky router with the netgear firmware (click here) in order to use it to piggyback my 'new' sky router.

would this help with the wireless signal dropping out?

or am i barking up the wrong tree entirely?
