      The connection speed up and down is the same as before, but that's probably the line rather than the router, but will see if that changes as its been pretty static since Day1, although it did improve when I rewired the extensions and replaced the filtered line socket.

      Overall, happy with it so far and seems better than my 1st Gen Netgear :-). It's also a nice looking bit of kit.
      Sounding good.

      Can't deny, one of the main reasons for me buying one myself was purely for the considerably better aesthetics of the new Hub.

      Just ordered a Sky Hub and a Wireless Connector for the Multi-room Box, estimated delivery 5 days.

      Like others my 2504 is working fine but I just prefer the look of the Hub (especially as it is located in the hallway), and anything that promises better coverage and no faffing about is always worth a shot in my book.

      Well, picked my Hub up from the GPO today after missing the delivery yesterday, and have to say my first impressions are rather "meh"......

      Plugged it in, and away it went absolutely no problem, and looks rather nice.

      However, my desktop wireless connection is down in strength as compared to the 2504N, and to be honest it just feels a little sluggish in comparison. INSSIDER is reporting it is running at a max rate of 144mbps, so not sure what is going on.

      The Sky Fibre team contacted me again to say that the issue is now fixed. I have checked on-line and the correct price in now coming up in the basket). Therefore Fibre users should be able to get it for 39 now.

      I think the low volume of issues, just like with the Sagem 2504N, is an excellent sign so far.

      Of course we all want to compare the Sky Hub SR101 to a previous router, which is only fair.
