      Switching Routers from Sagem to Negear

      Hi, I've got a Sagem Sky Branded router, had it about 12 months now, the wired connection is fine, however the wireless isnt, it keeps throwing my PS3 offline and my macbook cant even detect the signal in the back room of the house or downstairs kitchen, so in a nutshell I would like to know if I can buy a new and better router (say a Netgear DG834G v5) and use that.

      Trouble is I can see where in the sagem settings how to get the username and password logon details

      The Firmware version of the router is 1.9Sky

      I contacted Sky about the problem last year and they sent me another router, but they both have the same problem so I think it's down to just the model rather than fault.

      Please could anyone help

      Thanks

      Pete

      Wireless is environment dependant, what channel is the sagem on and have you tried different channels? Gaming on wireless is not a good idea, ethernet is always a better option.

      There is plenty of information in this section concerning passwords etc,
