      Does anyone know if it has QoS?

      Ideally I'd want N + GbE + QoS. Obviously it has N, and we know now it doesn't have GbE, but what about QoS?

      I doubt if it has QoS that can be configured, more likely just a priority to the green port*(Anytime+)

      Bah. That's no use to me - I'm stuck with a Thomson box

      I don't particularly need QoS myself, but Wifey could do with it for her VoIP phone.

      Re: Sagemcom F@ST2504 N router - pics

      I've just ordered the new wireless n router earlier this evening, it will be here 3-5 working days.

      Has I've never had a wireless n router before, I was wondering if someone could answer this question please.

      I have 2 devices that can use wireless n and one device that does not (vista laptop).

      How do I ensure that I am connected via wireless n with the mentioned devices but still been able to connect wirelessly with the Vista laptop, which as I mentioned earlier does not have a wireless n card in it.

      Thanks in advance.

      Other than making sure the router is set to N, or possibly G and N, nothing. The router and adapters will communicate as fast as they can.

      So if I were to set the router on N, I would still be able to connect the Vista laptop which does not have a wireless N card in it?

      Thanks for the help it's much appreciated

      If you set it to N only then the non N devices won't be able to connect. G + N will be your best call.

      To anyone else reading this it is a good idea to upgrade your devices to N (if possible) and switch your router to N only. Using N in conjunction with b, g or both will slow down throughput on all of them no matter which router you have.

      Again this only matters if throughput matters. If you don't download or transfer a lot then you probably won't notice it.

      Re: Sagemcom F@ST2504 N router - pics

      I'm considering upgrading the Vista laptop to wireless N. I've noticed some USB wireless N sticks in Argos, but there are several kinds N150, N300, dual band, but I'm unsure to which I would need to get to match the new Sky N router and wondered if someone could advise me on this please.

      Here's a link to some in the Argos catalogue:

      Buy Wireless peripherals and adaptors at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for Office.

      Also, is there any other way of upgrading the wireless system on a laptop, rather than via one of the USB wireless N sticks, it's just they do look like they stick out quite a way and wondered if there was other ways of upgrading.

      Other than the obvious maximum speed issue, they also cover either 20MHz bandwidth or 40MHz bandwidth, 2.4GHz channels or both 2.4GHz & 5GHz.

      If you want to just have an adaptor suitable for the Sky router, then one that can work at the maximum speed on the 20MHz bandwidth would be sufficient.

      If you want to be more future compatible, then the dual-band N600 adaptor would be a good choice. This would connect at the maximum speed on the new Sky router and allow you to connect to a 5GHz channel at a later date.

      This will depend on your laptop and the ability to open up the case in some instances.

      Someone suggested that I might like to change the WiFi adaptor on this laptop or the older one I have (WiFi g), but I'm out of date on changing them. I did search around at the time, but I couldn't find one that would have fitted either of my Laptops. I'd prefer to see the components and know if it is possible first.
