      Re: Wifi issues -Which phase is my router

      The Sagem 2304N is an N standard router. It was the first of the Wireless N class routers to be given out by Sky. It is pretty useless only being capable of 65 mbps, not much better than Wireless G. Sky very soon replaced it with the 2504N, also wireless N but capable of 144mbps. I think it could be referred to as a Phase 2 router, coming between the original phase 1 wireless G routers and the Phase 3 Sagem 2504N

      As a side note, none of the Sky routers, including the very latest SR102 make any mention in their settings about whether they are Wireless N. On the 2304N, 2504N, SR101 and SR102 the N speed is obtained by selecting Auto in the wireless mode. This can be seen by connecting an N client or by using Inssider.

      Sky should be replacing these as they are no where near true wireless N standard.

      Re: Wifi issues -Which phase is my router

      the lad in retentions said the sagem one i had without the N options was quite old. ( i knew that already) so im happy they have decided to replace it, even if its a reconditioned unit.

      apparently the adsl filters should be replaced after a year? if that true

      As I said none of them show as having the N option. He has probably put you down as a 2504g which is fine as far as you are concerned. I doubt if they will supply a reconditioned unit they are giving out the Sky Hub which has not been around long enough for there to be a lot of recons kicking around.

      As for replacing the filters after a year, never heard of that, there is not much in them that can wear out. I have been using my ADSLNation filter for over 7 years now with no problems.

      Re: Wifi issues -Which phase is my router

      thats okay then, he said the one i get would have probally been sent out and returned within the 14 day colling off period, to be fair im not really bothered. he said id still get 12 months warrenty if its faulty. the filters ive got fitted are about 3 years old, i was advised they have a "useful life" of a year or so.

      One thing I will say is that the quality of some of the filters issued by Sky in the past leave a lot to be desired. I believe they are now sourcing them from a different supplier and carry the Sky brand name. When you get the new router, use the filters that came with it.

      Typically the microfilters last around two years. After that they should be replaced. So as a minimum please ditch the pair you have and use the new ones supplied with your Sky Hub when you get it.

      If you are looking to get the best from your connection and have any extensions, consider a filtered faceplate instead. You will need the BTO NTE5 socket for these though. Currently the best on the market is the VDSL faceplate. Although meant for an FTTC (Fibre) connection, it works well with ADSL connections.

      As for the Sagem 2304n being a WiFi n router, the answer is a qualified no. Whilst it works at up to 72mbps for the WiFi, it does not have a WPS button which is a requirement I believe of the WiFi n specification. The signal strength was better than the WiFi g routers which it replaced, but is not as good as the Sagem 2504N or Sky Hubs (SR101 and SR102).

      Hopefully you will like the new router and the Booster.
