      Sagem 2304 F@ST flash firmware

      Hi there, just wondering if anyone can help me flash my sky router - it's a sagem 2304 F@ST, never been used, just opened it.

      I have moved over to plusnet and wanted to use this router as it's brand new and perfectly adequate (or should be).

      I have paid for it and think it's a bit shady that I can't use it wherever and with whomever I wish.

      I have seen various articles splashed around the net for slightly different models, but almost nothing for this one.

      Any help greatly appreciated.

      You may be able to find a custom firmware for this router but seriously give it some thought first.

      The Sagem 2304n was specifically made for Sky. It's chipset and design were put together for Sky.

      Personally i would recommend that you get yourself a better router. The Netgear DGN1000, for example, can be bought for around 30 at the moment and would be a lot better (150mbps on a paired channel).

      Sounds like good advice - I didn't realise that is was custom made for Sky... I have no real determination to use this router, just had a new one lying around.

      Thanks for your help.

      I used my Sagem on o2 and it was fine, I just cannot remember the steps on how to flash it with generic FW

      isitme would probably know.

      That was probably the old 2504 (which was based on the non-sky 2404, and could therefore support 2404 firmware). As far as I know the 2304 and 2504N do not have any standard Sagem firmwares available for them.

      Sky T & Cs state their routers are made for use on their network and will not work with any other ISP. Clever people have managed to hack the Netgears and the old Sagem so that they will, but nothing is available for the latest Sagems.
