      Not sure if it's a similar issue, but I used to use a Netgear DGN2000 router. It has an 'up to 270Mbps' mode which uses channel bonding. I found that the speed and stability with my laptop was worse as the network card couldn't cope. Reducing to a single channel improved things. It might be worth playing with the network card settings in your laptop to see if running at a lower speed actually helps as the Sky routers only work over a single channel.

      I do live in a block of flats and I use inssider I'm on channel 1 and so are many others but as I understand it its better to share channels than cross over 2 networks on 2 different channels.
      If there are many using the channel you are on change it. It is never good to share channels with near neighbors. You are looking for a channel which has no users on it or the 2 channels either side. If you can't find one, try channel 13. This is not used too often. Do this and you will get an immediate improvement in your speed.
