      Wireless signal strength = dlink
      Sync Speed = It varies by exchange but the netgear has been known to sync higher on non-svbn equipment and the sagem/dlink higher on the svbn.

      Without knowing how your connection is from the off its a bit pointless...also, if you've not tried, change the channel on the router. the 'auto' channel the Sagems are on is crap but once on a set number its fine

      Considering there are only a few issued, there seems to be a lot of problems with the Dlink.

      Re: Which is the best router sky can give?

      I've used the netgear (phase 2), sagem and the d-link. In my experience:

      Netgear: Good wireless signal and sync/speed as high as it will go and stable, but died on me a couple of months back after a few years of use.

      Sagem: Pretty poor wireless signal and struggled to reach the sync speed I was getting from the netgear.

      D-link: Only used it a day so far, but wireless strength is on par with the netgear and sync speed is much the same as the sagem - not as good, for my line anyway, as the netgear.

      In non-svbn for anyone wondering.
