      Best Sky Router

      Hi,
      I've got a choice of 2 Sky routers, the Netgear or the Sagem. Was wondering if there were any major differences/advantages between the 2, and if I should pick one over the other?

      Thanks

      Both are fine. I have both with no issues on either. I use VNC from the outside world in, also across my internal network as well with both )
