      Re: Say Hello

      I did have reservations about Sky, especially having to wait a week for the router and then it locking three times in the first hour!

      However, you SkyUser guys have already gone through all this and had the answer waiting - turn off uPNP.

      Great, cheers. Only Day three but well happy at the moment compared to my previous isp(s)!

      thanks again.

      Re: Say Hello

      Well I did it, around 2 weeks ago, I called Sky and ordered BB. Last week I got my router, today (15/3/07) I became a SkyBB user. So far so good, no router lock-ups, had to tweak things a little to get my speed up (see the Sky Router section of the Forums), and my e-mail is working too.

      Cheers everyone!

      Re: Say Hello

      Hi, Just switched to sky BB last week, after being with AOL. No problems with AOL, they were very good but Sky was much cheaper!!! Was pulling my hair out with P2P connections. I then read the tutorial on Azureus and am now enjoying fantastic speeds. Thank you for that one. Major help.

      Some think it's great, some think it's awful, some think it's OK, etc. etc.

      Same as with any other ISP, really.


      Personally, I'm very happy with it. Not as rock solid as my old ntl connection, but much faster & much cheaper.

      I to am a cable convert, I came from Telewest.... My recent move towards the exchange has improved my speed no end, although, I must admit any issues I did experience before were due to distance or wiring not Sky.
