      Hi Guys newby to site, does anyone know if I change my router to standard of the shelf one will that make any differents.
      I only ask because I sought the settings on the sagen that it came with Sky and some of the settings were a little odd.

      Thank you for any help

      It would not matter if you bought the most expensive enterprise router you could get your hands on, if you are on Connect, at peak times you will be throttled down until your connection is almost useless. The Connect package is very poor and nothing you can do will make it better. Have a read of this thread and others complaining about Connect -

      Which bit of Toms post are you struggling with ?
      If you are on Connect and are within your cooling off period then do one quick.
