      Is the Sky Router Any Good?

      All. I am currently a BT Broadband User and am considering moving to Sky Broadband. My final piece of research is around the router. My main concern is that its wireless range is poor. Can any of you comment on this?

      Many Thanks. David

      There are three routers, you could get any of these.

      I have one of the Netgears which works fine in all aspects for me, I have heard people moaning about the wireless range on the Sagem but for the few on here that have there are 10,000's that don't seem to have a problem.

      Bottom line is that wireless is a flawed way to transfer data and as the wireless frequencys get more and more overcrowded it will only get worse.

      Best option is wires or homeplugs.
