Can existing customers order this router yet? Or do I have to wait until 15th August. I have the Sagem 2504 router at the moment, its OK but I'm wondering if a new router might work better. Ever since I have been with Sky I've been about 58db attenuation, getting between 2.8mbps to 1.5mbps. I'm sure years ago when I used to be with Pipex I was getting around 48-52 attenuation using a cheap router (but I was limited to 1mb).
I was getting 2mbps for ages, then recently I have gone down to 1.5mbps, so I bought an iplate, new high quality modem cable, new micro filters in an effort to get a better connection, it may have made a tiny difference but not much. I tried connecting straight to the test socket but its the same attenuation (58.5). I actually bought a cheap modem cable and it put my attenuation up to 61db!
I know a new router probably won't change my attenuation, but I might get it just to update. I am already on the gamer profile. I think it did put me up to about 2.5mbps for a while, but stayed at 2.0mpbs for months until recently.
I used to get around 976 upload too!
