      How do I upgrade router to F@ST2504N

      How on earth do I get to upgrade F@ST2304 to F@ST2504N

      My older F@ST2304 was faulty so I called SKY to have it replaced and asked for the latest router only to receive the same one (like for like)

      Found the latest on ebay buy why not replace the old one for the latest?

      Sky have the Sagem 2304n is in the same group of routers as the WiFi g routers, as it isn't strictly speaking a WiFi n router.

      The Sagem 2504N is a WiFi n router.

      Their policy is to offer replacements for the type of router that you have. This means that your Sagem 2304n would be replaced with either a D-Link 2640S, Netgear DG934G, Sagem 2504 or Sagem 2304n.

      If you would like Sky to send you a Sagem 2504N then call them up and ask. The price is 35, inc. P&P and 1 year's warranty.

      Should the Sagem 2504N fail, you will be supplied a Sagem 2504N as a replacement.

      Thanks scubbie for that

      I'm having issues with this router in that online gaming is .. 'jerky', 3 minutes ok then jerks, then ok for 3 mins .. whatever

      Can you (anyone) recommend the best alternative router (wifi n) available now that'll work with SKY BB (T&C understood) after extracting password etc from the F@ST2304

      Regards and thanks again

      Any router works fine with Ethernet (which is always the recommended connection for gaming)

      I'd probably be looking at one of the Netgear routers for a mid-range one. Or a Billion if you have some spare cash to splash

      I am considering the 2504n from ebay as they are going for under 20 - but I would appreciate your help with how it would work, is it:

      a ) call sky and they will update my account with the new router's serial number.
      b) it would be for me to extract the login details of my old 2304 and insert them in the 2504 from ebay.
      c) is a plug and play thing.

      ?

      I rejected this idea due to previous posters saying that if the ebay seller has already extracted the details and applied to their new router, the one you just bought on ebay is affectively a 20 brick, for another 15 bought from SKY is it worth the risk

      This is probably not true. If someone has extracted the username and password for use in another router there may be a conflict, but as you are the owner and user of the proper router it would probably be the other user who was kicked off. For this reason you should never sell your Sky router, even if you do not use it.

      a ) call sky and they will update my account with the new router's serial number. No you only have to plug it in and it will update automatically. It is not like a Sky box which has to be paired to your account
      b) it would be for me to extract the login details of my old 2304 and insert them in the 2504 from ebay. No, if you did that it would in effect be a non-Sky router. In any case, at the moment, it is impossible to insert any details in the new routers.
      c) is a plug and play thing. Provided the router has been scanned into Sky's database it will be plug and play.
