      Are there pictures showing the antenna position?

      I couldn't find the James67 posting, sorry. Could you point me to it?

      Thanks

      BTW- Got my Sagem up and running, seems fine. Plugged in all my restricted MAC and Wireless settings. Everything seems to be working as it should.

      Thanks to all for your support.

      Sorry, I have been unable to locate the post it was a few weeks back and James posts a lot. Maybe James could help?

      I've sent him a private message...

      Do you remember any other key words in the posting? Were there pictures?

      I don't actually remember posting any pictures. I do have a picture, but it doesn't show the aerial very well…



      The aerial is a thin, F-shaped piece of metal. The ends of the two "prongs" of the F are soldered onto the PCB where you see the black square in bottom left corner of that picture.

      The "F" is sticking up, edge-on, towards the camera?

      Thanks, that helps a lot !

      ( I had my router sitting on the floor, tilted up so I could see the lights. However, the Wii is downstairs, so maybe I'll get better coverage if I tilt the router down instead. )

      Re: Migrating from white Netgear to black one

      Yeah, the one direction the signal probably doesn't do too well is through the PCB. Incidentally, the other dark grey Sky router, the DG934G, has a similar aerial, but the PCB is mounted upside down.

      So with the Sagem, it's best to have the bottom of the router (i.e., the side with the label) pointing away from you, but with the DG934GT it's better to have the label side pointing toward you.
