      Yep, tried that too, no difference.

      It is a brand new Draytek so I think it might be wise for me to send them an email and/or post on their forum as you suggest.

      I bought it primarily because it supports IP to MAC binding so I can use Wake on LAN via the internet (by sending the 'magic packet' to the router which will then forward it to the MAC address of the PC I want to wake up). There are a few other features I'd like to have a dabble with too; VPN for example.

      Just had a thought, I might try a traceroute later to see if I can find out where the problem is between my router and the Google address I've been pinging.

      Trace cert would have been my next suggestion for you to try. Frustrating as it is just keep plugging away with it. It clearly is not a connection issue, more packets being lost or corrupted in between points.
      Do you have access to an other router just to try that with sky. More than anything to prove the validity of the Draytek.

      Incidentally, what are you stats like when connected via the draytek?

      Unfortunately didn't get chance to have another diagnostics session with the Draytek last night so I'm going to try posting a question on the Draytek user forum. I'll post back here with any pertinent results.

      Hopefully I'll get a chance to try a traceroute tonight, watch this space.
