      Disable the WiFi on the Sagem 2304n.

      Piggyback the Netgear DG834GT to the Sagem and place the Netgear in a position where you can get reasonable WiFi reception.

      Alternatively, use a different WiFi router which has a better coverage than the Netgear and piggyback this instead.

      To piggyback the router, see this thread: http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/askin...-together.html

      Re: Sky NetGear DG834GT

      Is it a Sky router, with sky firmware still on it, or does it have Standard Netgear firmware installed? If it is a sky router with Sky firmware still on it, it will have a Sky test button on the main status page, and no configuration assistant link on the left hand menu.

      If it has standard Netgear firmware, you'll first need to obtain your sky authentication details for your normal sky router, see Sky d-link password extractor or the Password generator for other sky routers. Then hook up the Netgear router, and try the configuration assistant link in the Netgear's user interface http://routerlogin.net
