      Cheers. Just wondered if I could have it upright where I keep my router now. Mine is laid down because of space issues.
      Looks like I can have it upright with room to spare

      @Tony - What does the manual say about the Sky+HD light etc?

      I am still trying to get some info from sky regarding this incident. Those on the Beta Test (myself included) have specifically been asked not to discuss this router on the forums, hence the silence and current lack of information.

      We are currently preparing various pieces to be posted when the router is launched. Since we don't have confirmation of this and who will be able to get it when it is launched, we didn't want to promise anything too much for now.

      One dilemma is would I recommend waiting for the new router or the purchase of Sagem 2504N? Simply put, whilst this is a nice router, if you need a Sky N rated router to replace a dead router now, then get the Sagem 2504N as you could be waiting a few weeks.

      @liverpooltony: Could I ask for the present time if you could refrain from saying too much for now please?

      Re: Have sky conned me with my router

      Sky are aware that this router has been sent out, as I told them on the phone this morning, that we had published the pictures. I also asked them if we could have one for review as a forum.

      Whilst it maybe an error that this router was sent out, I think on hindsight, it maybe best to still keep the specs etc quiet, especially as we purposely complied with Sky's request (through the Beta Testers) to refrain from doing so, so as no Beta Testers could be accused of breaking NDAs etc

      If any other people receive this router, then it is possible it is a controlled release into the field etc and then, I think it would be just plain silly to not allow discussion of the router etc as the secret is already out.

      Re: Have sky conned me with my router

      @Tony - What does the manual say about the Sky+HD light etc? Sorry only just seen this. The manual is very thin and only really tells you about setting the thing up. It tells you nothing about the hub, it doesnt even say it's wireless N. It mentions nothing of the features either. I have attached a pic of the only page that may be of interest
