      User set noise margin now possible

      There now appears to be a URL injection hack that will allow users to adjust the SNR and hence the noise margin that the Sky router syncs at.

      I'm not sure if we are allowed to discuss it on this forum so I wont post a link - I expect you can find it if you want

      I can't see there's anything in the Sky T's and C's that would prevent it so hopefully the mods will be kind! My username on another board might help the curious...

      Seriously, there seem to be so many people suffering from connection slow down/loss of connection that I hope we can share this info here where there seems to be far more discussion on this topic. I'll be interested to find out how this "fix" works out for others too,

      Yes I agree it would be helpful but rules are here for a reason and NewsreadeR or Wheelie will decide whether or not it can be posted.

      If this is the post that i think it is, it would reveal the username and password, which is what Sky do not want to be divulged.

      Although I agree it is a great breakthrough, our ultimate aim is to work with Sky for the benefit of our site and their users. This would throw a huge spanner in the works, and as such we would not agree to this. Unless of course Sky confirm with us that there would not be a problem.

      I hope you understand our reasoning on this.

      No there are several URL injection hacks now. One of them certainly reveals your username and password. The one I'm referring to (by Moshady) just allows you to adjust the SNR the router syncs at.

      I will take your lead on whether this is allowed to be discussed on the forum.

      Well I did send Saturday a PM asking for the link but have had no reply so I guess any more discussion on this subject is mute.
