      Sky v1 router

      Hi all, When i first got Sky BB, there was suddenly noise on my line which turned out be the fault of the 934g router, so they sent me the older v1 router. Now i did read somewhere either on here or DS that they replace these at certain points! Is this true?? Does or did anyone else have have this problem with the newer 934 router.

      cheers.

      Erm the router gets replaced if there is a fault found with it, it's not replaced just for fun.

      With the new firmware there is nothing much wrong with the DG834GT. In many ways it is better than the cheap looking V2 routers, for one thing if you have wireless problems you can experiment with different aerials, which you can't do with the newer ones. With a compatible adapter the wireless is almost twice as fast.

      Your only saying that because it just somehow managed to fix your connection, i know there are alot of people on here who would beg to differ. The V2 routers seem to be more resilient to bad wiring, so pros and cons.

      fair enough it did sort my connection out but i feel v1 routers are better because you can basically sort your problems yourself with v1 routers with v2 they are basically unhackable... meaning that you have to beg sky to sort it out and that mean more on your phone bill..... they are pros and cons on this issue!!

      My Sagem performs just as well as my Speedtouch 546v6, which is a lovely little router. I think when DLM arrives I'll bang on the speedtouch along with DMT tool and have a good look at what is going on.
