      Connection set up for On Demand

      Just reviewing how I've got my network set up for On Demand.
      Previously:
      Old Sky Router [the white netgear] hooked up to TP-Link TL-WR1043ND to take care of the wireless as the sky one was only g not n;
      TP Link TL-PA211 paired with Netgear XAVB101 4 ports [with sky box, bluray and xbox] - all 200mpbs
      Latterly:
      Sky Hub sr101
      TP Link TL-PA211 paired with Netgear XAVB101 4 ports [with sky box, bluray and xbox] - all 200mpbs

      Not a lot of difference in the way the two setups work, both are fine.

      Two things I want to check with you guys who know these things:
      [1] Fibre is due to come to our village at the end of the year. How does this affect the kit I'll need, if at all?
      [2] It takes about forty minutes to dl a 1 hour HD TV show at 200 mpbs. In real terms, would replacing the current kit with 500 mpbs stuff make a big difference to this dl speed?

      Or something else??
