      router flickering v performance

      I got Sky's base broadband three months ago and while it has never been great, the performance has been especially poor of late. Looking at the router the internet and no.1 lights flicker randomly (about once every five to 15 seconds. This seems to coincide with a loss of connection. It is fine for browsing the net but online gaming is a complete no-no. ANyone have any suggestions how the problem of intermittant connection could have arisen in the last week or so...?

      Don't know about the flickering, but I would recommend turning off UPnP in the router. See the Sky CD help files for how to address the router's user interface via Internet Explorer.

      Well, I think that the Netgear Router is rubbish. I had the same problem and replaced mine with a Linksys and the connection has been 100% stable ever since. I actually replaced mine with an AM200, but I can't recommend it as a direct replacement for the Netgear, it is a completely different kettle of fish.
