      Re: Own Routers

      Yep, had the letter from Sky stating we can continue to use our router. I'm guessing this means we'll stay on PPPoE for the connection as well and it's literally a rebranding exercise as opposed to 'moving' to Sky as I'm keeping my BT line as well

      Re: Own Routers

      The O2 router is an ADSL2+ router and will not be able to connect directly to the BTO Modem like the Sky Hub SR101 can.

      You could try piggybacking it to the Sky Hub SR101. This would allow you to potentially have additional access points.

      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/askin...-together.html

      As for comparing their actual signal strength, people found that the Sky Hub SR101 and Sagem 2504n are pretty equal. In some cases the Sagem was better than the Sky Hub in other cases it was the other way around. Both these routers from Sky use similar chipsets and are rated WiFi n @144mbps.
