    Hi All thinking of leaving BT with home hub and getting Sky do you think this is a good move ? Apart from the price saving. I download a lot of torrent files do any of you good people have any problems with torrents if you use them?

    Also does the Wireless Router have Ethernet connections as i use these more than the wireless side of the BT home hub.

    Many thanks

    Rog

    hi,

    its actually a netgear dg834g running Sky's own firmware.

    works fine with torrents, crappy wireless reception though.

    4 x ethernet ports --> built in switch.

    The LLU services base, mid & max are fine for torrents. The BT Wholesale based Connect service is traffic shaped. To what extent I'm not too sure.
