    This is a discussion on Which router do you use? within the Sky Router forums, part of the Sky Broadband help category; It keeps restarting for some reason. Why do we HAVE to use their ****ty routers? Most seem to be happy ...

      Most seem to be happy with this router and you have not asked for help with it. Are you sure your internal wiring is not to blame. Something is wrong, as if you are 100Ms from the exchange, you should be getting the full download speed.

      As many will attest, being new does not always mean trouble free. Have you tried the TEST socket to see what speed you sync at and your SNR?

      We havent got a master socket. We just have a gray box in the cellar where the phone line comes in, Then it goes upstairs to the socket behind the bar. Its the only socket we have.
