      Question Latest Sky Sagem 2504N router & Sky Hub difference?

      Hi i called a week ago to advise that im receiving interference on my nearly 3 year old router.

      I agreed a new contract where they would send me the latest router. I was expecting the wireless hub (white one advertised on their website) but instead been sent the Sagem 2504N.


      My question, is the performance the same or does the hub do something completly different to just opperating as a router.


      My only concern is of performance & cutting of interference.

      There's a number of posts on here that suggest there's little or no difference between the two in terms of wireless performance. Thinkbroadband.com did a little review of the hub, thinkbroadband :: New Sky Broadband Router Reviewed, and found that the sagem, in certain conditions, actually performed better.

      I wouldn't be too disappointed!

      Lack of difference apart, if you signed up for another 12 months on the promise of their latest router, you should complain bitterly, as you have not received it.

      There are a few pages of reviews in this forum too.

      Sky User - The New Sky Router Hub - SR101

      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-n...fications.html

      Sky User - Sky?s new broadband router to deliver the best wireless range of any major provider

      We even have our own section full of guides written by members of the forum:

      Sky Hub SR101

      Essentially there is little difference beween the hardware specs from the point of view of connecting to the WiFi or the Ethernet. There are some small differences in the firmware, but Sky are currently working on fixing this. The most recent firmware for the Sagem 2504N should use the same ability to pick the best channel for WiFi as the Sky Hub SR101.

      Otherwise the differences are that the Sky Hub SR101 has an internal PSU, whereas the Sagem 2504N uses an external PSU.
