      The two things are totally different, swearing or whatever is unneccessary and contributes nothing - the other apect has a contribution
      Now your splitting hairs and you know it, if you allow one rule to be broken then you may as well let them all be broken. If you had or have looked in the admin forums you would have seen that I agreed to let the thread about the NM stand as long as we got to see the link first and I did PM Saturday for it and did eventually get it.

      @wheelie

      It's the same as the law.

      If you question a law you think is wrong/stupid, you're not saying all laws are wrong/stupid are you?
      What are you talking about I haven't said anything about laws being wrong or stupid as I recall everyone involved in this post is up in arms about a rule they don't agree with not me.

      I'm not splitting hairs at all so no i don't know it. The 2 things are vastly different. I'm not suggesting any rules be broken - i'm suggesting change which has happened

      It has been proposed that this is the case, but IMHO, it hasn't been proved. There's plenty of anecdote out there but bear in mind that people that use netgear's fw and notice no tangible improvement probably won't post the result. So, you're not starting with a valid sample from the population from which to draw sound conclusions. For example, my anecdote is that there is no improvment with the normal netgear firmware. An analysis thus far of the actual code differences would seem confirm that.

      It's more likely that the problems are a symptom of the fact that the implementations of the ADSL2+ protocol on most routers are in general immature, the dg834gt included and they'll improve over time. (EDIT: The chipset is a good one however, so maybe it is the firmware after all in which case its all firmwares om this router.) I think that this is the problem with forcing people to use this router whatever the firmware, and why it would be useful to know how to use a different router even though that would breach the contract. My questions to the moderators is: would such a conversation on the "hidden techies" forum (i.e. how to use a different router?) be censored?

      @ dingdong, forgot to tell you there is a 10.00 fee to gain access so we can remove the adverts

      @ NewsreadeR

      Sounds an eminently sensible suggestion and one used on another forum I admin. There is stuff i'd like to discuss but wouldn't like to see it in a public forum as none of us need the "I did it because the man on the interweb told me" situation.

      The design of the SkyBB service is that it's plug & p[l|r]ay and for 99.9% of those signed up ( like my old man ) the closest they need to get to the router is powering it on .. believe me it's a lot safer for all concerned if that is the case ....

      I would certainly hope not. This information is already well publicised anyway so i doubt if it would get much of a mention anyway - maybe the odd newbie that needed a link reference

      If the discussion stays in that forum and is not repeated elsewhere on the general forums we will not censor it.

      This works both ways, if you abuse the trust we are giving you we will pull the plug. period
