sky hub


[link to this post]
 
just rejoined sky due for activation on the 8th august,

Can anyone with the sky hub tell me what the wireless is like IE range wise and if its full wireless N (300Mb), I used to be with sky a while back but used my own router i understand things have changed which makes it a bit harder to do these days so im hoping the hub is an improvement over the horrid things they used to send out lol

Thanks Ash

Quick look at the speeds. Still using it, and coverage is pretty reasonable, but nothing too exciting. A fast FTTC line could be held back by the hub.

thanks for the reply ive got back to ADSL so broadband wise not a prob but i do network transfer so 300 would of been an advantage but not the end of the world still better than the old sky router i had were the wireless was capped at 64Mb, range wise though mainly for mobiles,

I see your only getting 767 on the upload is that due to a profile your on or isit the hub limiting it i only say this because on my old sky router my upload would never go past 800k sync but when i plugged my TT D-Link (after extracting user/pw from sky router) in it would go to full 1.3

Thanks

The Sky DLM tweaked itself a month or two ago, so the upload has gone up now
