      Is it for fibre or normal ADSL?

      Sorry for taking so long to reply, I thought I had subscribed to the thread. It's for ADSL. I'd like to be able to tweak my SNR and gigabit lan would be nice too. The only feature that the Billion doesn't have that'd be nice is 5Ghz wifi.

      I just ran a tracert and it's showing that I'm connected to Easynet equipment at my exchange. This is strange because when I first signed up I was on Sky equipment. I signed up as soon as Sky broadband was available on LLU in my exchange and they were the first LLU here.

      I just checked my sync rates for the first time in a while and it's dropped 2meg and is now connecting via PPPoA, it used to be MER. What's going on? :-s

      Sky appear to be swapping ADSL customers back from MER to PPPoA for some reason, plenty of reports logged.

      Hopefully someone who uses their own router will give you some advice etc soon.
