      Coming Soon: Best Router For Sky BB

      Yes for your viewing pleasure I am going to test the following routers
      When my dsl is moved to Sky LLU on Tuesday.

      We shall find which give the best sync and throughput rates for both Wireless
      and Ethernet.

      Sky Netgear DG834GT (Broadcomm Chipset)
      Sky Netgear DG934g (TI-AR7 Chipset)
      Sky Sagem Fast 2504 (Broadcomm Chipset)
      Netgear DG834G V5 (Conexant Chipset)

      Who Will Win?

      I would say the Billion 7402G series would beat them all.

      The Broadcomm chipsets

      Have run The Sagem fast and non sky DG834GT as back up.
      While the DG834GT is running TeamDG firmware the wireless is far better than the Sagem fast. However I use the Sagem fast as default router as i don't use wireless.
      Surprisingly the DG would loose sync in the small ours due to low SNR.
      The Sagem holds the sync and never drops out due to low SNR!
      I would prepare to use the DG for ease of monitoring as the sky routers are very limited.

      You must be one of the first to travel in that direction, most of the traffic seems to be the other way. Any particular reason?

      The new SVBN is apparently Broadcom based, so if you are going on that, the GT and the Sagem should come out on top.

      Edit - I think the existing network is Conexant based, so the V5 should be best if you are on that.

      Anyone been able to prove this yet? Will any of the OPs routers be able to display the DSLAM manufacturer?

      Yes, you could probably buy all 4 for the price of one Billion.

      Moving purely to save some cash i dont have a o2 mobile anymore so will be saving 120 a year moving to Sky Unlimited, and the increased upload I get on o2 isnt worth 120 to me.

      I am not moving the line rental so I expect I will end up on the Easynet dslam
      so I am also expecting the DG834g V5 to have the slight edge on the others.

      And I am sure the Billion would work well but considering the 4 routers in total only cost 30

      DG834GT 10
      Sagem 5
      DG834g v5 15
      DG934G Free

      Getting a Billion would use up any money I save from the move in the first
      place.

      Well for my use I have both the DG834GT and now the DG834G v5 and the latter is better.
