      new sky router being sent

      hi ppl,

      i have the black netgear (i think DG848GT) had it for over 2 years. It finally broke i rang sky and they didn't have a clue what the netgear was so they said they will send me a sagem. I described the router i had after 20mins and i realised the sagem probably looks like the old netgear (looks like a sky hd box). Now i am confused my netgear was SOLID i need a reliable connection how good is the new router they are going to send me?? is it as fast? or is it phone line dependant?
      also whats its wireless coverage? as i am normally quiet far from the router.

      Chances are you will get a D-link, they all seem about as good/bad as each other.

      The DG834GT is white, all other Sky routers are grey/black.

      Re: new sky router being sent

      ok guys i been with technical support and APPARENTLY it was not my router. wipeee!! it was the phone line, its now fixed.
      HOWEVER, they sent me a replacement router anyway. ITs the D-Link DSL-2640S which looks exactly like the Netgear from the outside!

      Has anyone got any advice is the D-Link better then my DG934? any forum comments on relaibility and SPEED between the two??

      I have the D-Link router. I find it surprisingly good to be honest. I get a better wireless range than with my Netgear DG834GT that I used to use with my last ISP.

      I find the D-Link very stable. I currently have an uptime of 1621 hours.
