      What you should be drawn to is a Speedtouch 585v6. Works very well with BT Broadband, as does just about any router. Of the sky ones, the Netgear is prob the best to go for as there are a lot about. Agree about the Home Hub, but if you can get another they make nice bookends.

      i had one of the first homehubs and it ended up as a event
      i smashed the ---- out of it

      ok, i got a dg834g non-sky and it has given me 3mb more than i ever got before, i have a 8mbps limit and router says 81**kbps but i got on speedtest.net 85**kbps, wow
      andthe only setting were i oput my primary e-mail as the username and bingo, give it a try,the wizard did everything else

      update:
      bt, you mugs
      honestly ditch the homehub and use it to support the rubbish in your bin
