      The reported speed of 75mb is very slow for WiFi n. All the others I have seen have speeds from 150Mbs to 300Mbs
      You are correct Scubbie, Full N is 300mbps and requires at least two bonded channels on two aerials. Lite N is single aerial, single channel giving 150mbps. What must be remembered though is that these are theoretical speeds, in real life even using compatible adapters, many will struggle to get half that. I would think the Sky bod was referring to real world speeds, which would make the new Sky router Lite N.

      I done a bit more reading up and it seems the WiFi Alliance only certify this router for 802.11b/g but has optional 802.11n capabilties which might explain why it only supports 72Mbps.

      It also explains what the guy from Sky said about it on the Sky Help forum.

      I also noticed on the WiFi Alliance site they mention a F@ST 2504N SKY being certified as 802.11n so that is probably Sky's full 802.11n router.

      I just wish they would let you use your own router as I have a nice dual band router gathering dust for the moment.

      There is nothing stopping you from using your own router, provided you can extract the username & password from your own router.

      Unfortunately that might take a little while for the boffs to crack on this new router. firstly they need to get hold of one.

      What you could consider doing in the mean time is to link the Sky router & your old one together. This is a popular request so I composed a document to help. You'll find it in the thread below:

      Once linked together, you could leave the Sky router's WiFi on or you could turn it off.
