    D-Link 2640S question (newbie)

    This is a discussion on D-Link 2640S question (newbie) within the Sky Router forums, part of the Sky Broadband help category; I think Exdee meant to say 'should not notice a decrease'. I tried an unlocked HH2 on my Sky line ...

      I think Exdee meant to say 'should not notice a decrease'.

      I tried an unlocked HH2 on my Sky line and it gave a 10% reduction in sync speed. That was on the Easynet network, I am now on Sky.com so I might dig it out and give it another try.

      I had it connected (locked) to my Sky router using this method - http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/askin...-home-hub.html it worked OK, but not as good as the Dlink I have now.

      I can see how that would be confusing. Sorry for the poor sentence construction.

      Thanks for the timely re-posting of the links to the forum on hacking the HomeHub v2. A friend has just left me her old one so I'll be working on this sometime over the next few weeks.
