      Sagcom F@st 2405n fibre firmware

      Hi all

      I just had fibre installed this morning but sadly no router as yet. Sky assure me that it will arrive in the next few days but i need bb access for work. I do however have the above router which i believe is the one sky send out. I was wondering if one of you wonderful people could either pm / email / point me in the direction of a copy of the fibre firmware for this router, my theory being that right router + right firmware = happy me/boss. thanks in advance for any help / advice

      There are two types of this route and the ADSL one cannot be used on fibre. You would need one of the others mentioned on here like the Billion 7800 or TP link have a search for the threads below yours

      The ADSL one is a v6 where as the FTTC one is a v7

      I'm not sure if the difference in revision is simply down to the firmware they run or if the v7 has a slight internal change (e.g more flash space perhaps)

      When I ordered fibre before the public launch, I was told that if I had a 2504n, Sky could update the firmware remotely to save sending a new router out. Sadly I had an old Netgear so never got to 'test' it. Seems they haven't applied it to the live product though.

      The recovery tools/image from the 2504N v7 (FTTC) CD

      Not sure if it's any use though.

      Would be useful to find out, as the ones on the v6 don't work.

      You can however use the v7 on ADSL or Fibre from experiences on here.

      Re: Sagcom F@st 2405n fibre firmware

      I have 2 spare ADSL flavoured ones, can I nail the above in and convert them to FTTC flavoured ?
      Or is there a hardware difference between a ADSL and a FTTC 2504N ?
      Nothing to lose as they are just sat on a shelf.

      No Idea...

      Actually might try it on my Adsl one over the weekend, given it's locked to Sky anyway can't see me really see much other use for it and even if I did break it I've still got the FTTC one Sky sent me ;-)

      I tried and failed. I used the files off the FTTC CD.
      It starts and counts down to 70 seconds then fails. Anyone else faired better than me ?
