      Reliability wise both are as good as each other.

      How high is your attenuation? I have tested both and am on the Sagem as I type this, my attenuation is 45.

      Thats a pretty good sync speed for your line considering the high Line Attenuation.

      What model of netgear are you using with BT?

      I have got a high Line Attenuation and have been sent the Sagem so will have to see what its like once my line has been activated.

      In my experience, the Sagem is a much better router. My old Netgear was on the blink and, after a few calls to the SKY helpline, they agreed to give me a new router. Externally, it looked the same as the old one, but was labelled Sagem. After installing it, I noticed an immediate improvement in download speed as well as improved wireless range. The Sagem also uses marginally less electricity. It wins on all counts!
