      That is strange. The only time I have see that happening is when the noise margin was being 'forced' with something like the DMT tool. Would you like to try a power cycle to see if it makes any difference. Pull your power plug out for a minute and push it back in again, that ensures you are resyncing. If you are using something like the DMT tool, forget it, you obviously don't need to be told how to suck eggs.

      LOL. Nah not using the DMT tool. I did a completely unplug it a while back but I didnt have any joy with it improving - ill try it again in a few days, my dl speed is great i dont want to risk getting capped or lowing the sync massively from continual reboots if its a minor problem like the filter (XTE2205) causing the problem as getting it back is always a pain. An no its never ben forced or anything. It is only a recent thing, maybe stretching back as far as the conservatory being built but as the cable is completely under the lead flashing it's not something that I can check. I was more wondering if the router could be at fault or the XTE2005?

      I didn't mean to sound arrogant before, sorry if it came across like that.

      ps. stats a few hours later

      Re: Coming Soon: Best Router For Sky BB

      slight necropost, so sorry...but it seems like the best thread.

      For a couple of years i've been using a Linksys WAG54GS router having dumped the truly dreadful Sky-supplied netgear. However, it drops connection every couple of days or so around 5pm and needs to be manually re-connected via the web interface. I'm getting royally fed up of not being able to get into my computers or slingbox from remote areas, so my question is:

      what's the best router (don't care about wireless, it goes into an Apple Time Capsule) to connect to my Sky Broadband, that will reset itself and reconnect the connection properly *by itself*? It should be upgradeable from my mac too, preferably, which the linksys isn't.

      thanks for any help!

      Re: Coming Soon: Best Router For Sky BB

      It really depends on the DSLAM at your local exchange, most of them are Broadcom, so any decent Broadcom compatible router would do, my local exchange uses Connextant, so I use the Netgear DG834G v5 although the SKY supplied DG834GT has never really let me down, using the Sky User firmware.

      It's a case of you get what you pay for, if you want real reliability then you need to look at Draytek routers.

      I had a word with my friendly BT engineer :-), I did once try googling it but didn't come up with anything helpful, maybe someone else may have an answer to that.
