      Sky SR101 vs Sagem F@ST 2504n

      I just received the new Sky Hub and am a bit dissapointed.
      The router it replaced (Sagem F@ST 2504n) was working well and I thought the Hub would be even better however I'm getting less WiFi coverage on my devices in rooms where the Sagem F@ST 2504n was providing better coverage.
      Does the Sky Hub have a 'better side' to face the other devices?

      Is there anything i can do with the Hub to get any better coverage or am I better of switching back to the
      Sagem F@ST 2504n?

      Yeah Ive noticed that too, the wireless is worse, good job MY PC is connected via Ethernet.

      But they are bragging about superior wireless.....I dont think so...
      Unless changing the channel helps but I was under the assumption it did that automatically.

      Received my SR101 yesterday in preparation for my fibre installation on Thursday. Will set it up later and will let you know how it compares to my existing 2504n.

      Check out this link: thinkbroadband :: Sky SR101 ADSL and Fibre Broadband Router Review

      It's not comprehensive, but shows there's little in the way of superior wireless

      Re: Sky SR101 vs Sagem F@ST 2504n

      Have to admit, most of the above mirrors my own experience. Was previously using the 2504n and getting pretty much full strength coverage all around the house. Having moved to the SR101 Hub, I've noticed that the signal isn't always full strength any more. It's not enough to cause me any issues thankfully, but it most certainly didn't give an improvment over the 2504n, quite the contrary.

      Sky SR101 vs Sagem F@ST 2504n

      Judging by the real life experiences of people usung the hub it would appear that the wireless is not indeed superior to the 2504n

      Which seems to be a real shame in all honesty.

      "Get online further with the best wireless range of any major provider"

      Are you saying that Sky's catchphrase for the new hub is inaccurate? Surely not.

      Pre-Sky I used a Netgear DGN2000 and found the wireless signal on this better than the Sagem 2504, even on a single channel. I know these routers are free, but given Sky insist on you using their equipment it is disappointing that they've not given the Hub better wireless specs, especially as a lot of devices use wireless connectivity.
