      Always use the Sky one. With one exception: you have a specific technical requirement that the Sky one doesn't support. If you don't know if you have a specific technical requirement that the Sky one doesn't support, then you don't.

      Don't pay too much heed to the bad press - IMHO, 95% of the "complaints" about this router are actually local wiring problems or problems between keyboard and chair!
