      I have 3 spare sky routers - yeah.

      So when i ordered my Sky connection i'm not sure what happened.

      I first recieved 2 boxes. I opened them and both had the version 1 routers i thought that waws strange i only needed one.

      Then a few days later i got another package from sky! It was the V1 router again!

      A week later i got another delivery from sky yes it was the V1 router.!

      So i have 3 sky routers now not sure if i should flash them with the Netgear firmware of sell 'em or give them back to sky. ofcourse i will keep 2 spare.

      Yeh I got two off them to. The new netgear one and the new segem one. i don't use them though. I got my password and username off the new netgear one and am using the netgear DG834GT that I've been using for the last two years. I find it faster and more reliable.

      Make sure you keep one of them, you never know Sky may introduce MAC filtering now that 2 out of 3 routers have been cracked.
