    Sky Router vs Archer VR600

    I am upgrading to Sky ultrafast next week and have just received a new router, model number SR204. I replaced my last Sky Router with an Archer VR600 so was wondering if I should stick with the Archer or if this latest Sky router will be a better option? That is assuming the Archer can be used...

    Which router for my situation?

    I have recently moved in with my partner and unfortunately for me, there is no fibre in our postcode. She has Sky broadband. I need a wired ethernet connection that is as rock solid as possible as I work in family law and all our hearings are via Teams now. The Sky router is frankly rubbish and...

    Recommendations for mesh SKY Q network?

    Hi, is anyone able to recommend a good mesh wi-fi setup that works with Sky Q? I am able to get good download speeds 90mb+ but wi-fi keeps dropping out.

    I can get BT 900mb FTTP now but would prefer to stick with Sky. Looking around it seems BT get first dibs on new FTTP connections before SKY can even offer it. What is annoying is not knowing when SKY will be able to offer this service. A month, two months, a year? Upload speed will prob be...

    Sky Broadband Fibre Router

    Hi, Does anyone know which routers support Sky fibre broadband? I understand that the TP Link VR2800 is one of them but they cost slightly more than i want to spent (£160). Are there any router/modems that offer decent Wifi coverage for around £100 that supports Sky Fibre?

    Your broadband speed is slower than it should be Our tests have found your Sky Hub's receiving slower speeds than it should. This is possibly because of recent extreme weather in your area, such as flooding. Your speed should be back to normal within the next 7 days. Unfortunately, a Sky...
