      new routers?

      New here, so please bear with me

      I've just got the ball rolling with migrating over to Sky (Max) for my broadband.

      I'm a bit confused as to which model of router I'm going to get. I thought it would be one of the little white Netgear jobs, but now I see there's the ones that look like my HD box (very nice).
      Does anyone know if I'm likely to get one of these new models, as I get the impression there are various problems with the original router.

      cheers

      I joined Sky about 2 weeks ago and i got the new black Sagem router. So far i had perfect performance. And it looks great too.

      Re: new routers?

      Hi Guys,

      First post as I'm new to sky broadband.

      My parents ordered Sky BB 2 weeks ago and got the new netgear router.

      I ordered last week. Got the new Sagem router

      Hope this helps!

      Don't know which is best, indeed if there is any difference at all.

      Watch out guys these new Sagem routers are crap. Everything works as far as I can see except for VPN passthrou.

      I've been trying all day to get this to work without success. My trusty Netgear did it no problem.

      Stay away from these Sagem's
