      It depends how you look at it.

      I'm a ps3 gamer & since joining sky with their 2504n router, i've not had a single problem with it.

      I know they're locked down, basic & simplified but go to the playstation forums & you'll find a general culture of dislike for the routers supplied by talktalk, bt & virgin.

      I think the latter 2 may have upped their game with their latest offerings, but still...

      The Sky Hub SR101 is a slightly different concept to all the other routers on the market in one respect: Built in PSU.

      As for reliability, no complaints from me.

      There is an issue I have at present and this has been reported to the development team. They have replicated it and to the best of my knowledge are working on it or have fixed it for the next Sky Hub (currently in beta testing) and wil release an amended code when that is released.

      As for speed: I think that most of the regular members will agree that Sky could have done better.

      1Gbit LAN may be OTT for many people, but the component cost difference isn't that big. 300mbps WiFi on dual band is most certainly which ISP should have been supplying last year, let alone this. Both VM and BT Retail only released theirs this year, just before the summer holidays.

      As for the firmware, the beta group have provided a long list of things which would be beneficial. This is something which can and hopefully will be worked on for a future release. However I currently believe that someone within the development process has stipulated to keep things simple.

      Yes the router is fit for purpose. Sadly that purpose is not necessarily one for a high performance user.

      If you need a fast LAN connection, then I would highly recommend the use of a 1Gbit Network Switch. I currently have three 8-Port Switches, all 1Gbit. If you need a fast WiFi, then you'll need to consider either a WiFi Extender or your own router.
