      As i side note one of my neighbours has just signed to sky and has recieved a d-link router not sure if thats better or worse.
      Well, both have the relatively new broadcom bcm6328 chip, and the same wifi chip, but the D-link doesn't do wireless N, and reportedly the wifi range isn't as good.

      Most people seem to be reasonably ok with it once it has updated itself to the Sky_2.04 firmware, although a few people have apparently had connection stability problems, mostly Sky Connect customers I think - I don't know if that was cured by the firmware update, or not.

      In case you might want to use your own router in the future, I would recommend that you go through the process to extract the password from the D-Link router before the firmware is updated to 2.04.

      Re: Sagemcom 2304 piece of CRAP !

      FYI

      My replacement router came last Thurs and it was another Sagem................


      ................. F@ST2504 Router!

      Looks like the 2304n is on hold for now?


      Anyhow I hooked it up Thurs PM and it's been running 90h+ with no issues except.....


      I phoned Sky BB Thurs pm and asked them to manually configure my line. A few minutes later it was giving me an 8Mb connection and this has been fine the few times I've checked over the weekend.

      Today however I find I'm back down to 4 Mb??

      Here's my current router stats:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4064 kbps 640 kbps
      Line Attenuation 28.0 db 14.5 db
      Noise Margin 21.6 db 7.0 db


      I've checked my exchange on Sam Knows and it reports I'm 1.04 km from an ADSL2+ enabled exchange & my expected connection should therefore be @ 11 - 16 Mb??


      I thought perhaps automatic DLM had finally kicked-in, but surely that show up as a disconnect /reconnect on the stats page - no? Also my Sky BB home page is till showing "...unable to display your broadband connection details".

      Any ideas on what's going on here?

      Call Sky and ask them to configure your speed as you now have a new router. 14-16 Mb should be possible.
