If that is the case then it is almost certainly not the router. You have described a classic case of interference. Try using something like Netstumbler to find out what channels are in use locally and choose one the isn't. Preferably not even next to one that is in use.

the sagem one is an excellent router and would agree with above that i would check that no one else locally is using the same channels or alike.

Using a different router than the one sky supply is "technically" in breach of their T&C's

If you are still having problems and want to use another router, you need to extract your username and password from the sagem router.

That is fairly simple if needed.

and follow the instructions.

I would suggest sticking with your sagem router as it's very good when working correctly.

yes i agree with the above, it could be something as simple as a video sender or something like that. i cannot get on the net if my sender is on, but if its turned off then i can go all over the house and get a great signal
