OK I have been having some problems with my connection since I was activated last week.
Just out of interest I thought I would try my old router to see if I could get any better download speeds. My old router is a kcorp KLS-5810.
I found out my username and password (thanks to a very helpful guide ) and put them into my old router. to my suprise I am getting about 450kbps extra on my old router thanon my sky router .
I cant test the stats on my old router though but the connection is very stable.
Do I tell sky and let them know I am not using their router (against t&c). Could I get even faster??

I would not tell sky about using a different brand of router as this does break the T & C of your contract, can tell them you think there is a fault with the router though.

I would try the Sky router in the test socket of the master socket just to confirm.

I already have my router connected to the master/test socket.
Using all the same cables power and modem cable and my old router still is giving me 416kbps more than the sky router.
Now I have a long line about 4.5km and my Line Attenuation is 63.5 db.
I can only get 1440kbps (not as good as most of you out there) but higher than the 512kbps I have been used to, this is with my kcorp router my sky router gives me 1024kbps
The connection is stable with no dropouts so I am wondering if I can get any better.
In my other thread it was mentioned that I could possibly get upto 2mb but the skycustomer service rep told me I couldn't get over 512k after the "settling in period".
Do I tel sky that I have done a test with my old router and I get higher speeds, but am still using the sky one provided or do I play dumb (not hard really! )
Thanks again for any help
