      Re: n type router

      My sister recently signed up to Sky BB and although I havn't seen the router myself it's definately one of the silver ones and having a look at the contents of the Sky CD that came with it it has Sagem recovery software and the recovery image is a 2504n - would they send out the wrong CD with one of the old routers? It would seem unlikely I would have thought....

      The exact filename is F2504n_5_14_7a4N_fs_kernel_NONE

      it's a pity she's only got the Connect service eh?

      I hope you told her it was a rubbish service and most here would not touch it with a bargepole.

      I did point it out but she was far more interested in the free BB for six months, she also said that after 12 months is up she's free to go elsewhere, which I thought was a fair point. I predict that she'll be thoroughly sick of it by then, after which I'll get a cheap "n" router.

      I've been carefully reading those ads. They state clearly that the free broadband offer is only available in areas where Sky has their equipment installed in the local exchange.

      With this in mind I would be very surprised if she does actually have free broadband.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      My sister is a trained solicitor so I very much doubt she'd sign up to anything without knowing the fine print inside out.

      I daresay they have a certain amount of leeway when it comes to signing up new customers, especially at the end of the month when they have quotas to meet, as she told me.
