      How the sky FTTC router gets the sync speed info.

      Incase anyone was curious the way the sky FTTC router is able to display the sync speed info is because the information is being sent back as a Hex value in DHCP options 242 and 243

      Option 242 contains the upstream Sync speed and Option 243 contains the downstream Sync speed

      The information is also present in the DHCP renew, which begs the question as to why the sky router doesn't appear to automatically update the sync speed info if the modem resyncs at a different speed
