      Question Which router will I likely get?

      Just ordered Sky BB MAX. Which router do they usually give now? Is it the Sagem or Netgear DG934GT?

      Do they even give out the old white Netgear DG834GT?

      Luck of the draw, think you are more likely to the get the phase 2 netgear though.

      The phase 2 netgear router is the Netgear DG934G. Which is better out of Netgear or Sagem I'm not too sure I've only had the Netgear DG834GT. So you'll need to wait for someone else to reply.

      There are advantages to the DG834GT, such as better access to stats, customized firmware available and the ability to run a 108mbps WLAN if you so wish. The newer models are restricted to 54.

      I am lucky enough to have used both for a lengthy period of time, and found both of them a very much equal.

      If I had the choice of two, mmmmmm. Tough one.
