Make sure you have QOS, URL Filter etc disabled or not set

If you still have issues, you might need to login to the open reach modem to check the sync speeds

You will have to google it (I think you have to unlock the modem and then use port 2 on it to login to it)

Too rule out the 7800N being the issue, try the steps below

1. Reset the 7800N back to factory default settings
2. Login and click on 'WAN' and setup the internet connection (don't configure anything else yet)
3. Using a wired connection to the router, check the speeds (with only one device connected to the router)

If you still get slow speeds then you can check the open reach modem's stats out

Open reach modem and the 7800N working well getting speeds of 75mbs and wifi much better.

Thanks Billion Fan for all your help.. May look at one box Billion solution in the near future.

Does this router handle ipv6 well with sky?

I am not convinced that my exchange has been enabled yet. Not a sniff of ipv6 except for Teredo.

It should work fine, other ISP's were using it

OK Thanks.

As I said, I am not convinced it has been enabled at my exchange yet but I will keep checking.

Hi All, I've connected my 7800N successfully using an OpenReach modem but I'm getting significantly lower connection speeds that the SKY supplied SR102.

I started from a cleanly reset device with the latest firmware (1.06h.dt2) and setup was straightforward. I've checked and not set any further settings for QoS or Virtual Server. I also noted some prior comments about VLAN setting of 101 but in the latest version of the firmware I only can see an options for VLAN mux '802.1Q VLAN ID' within the WAN profile advanced settings page. Enabling this and the internet connection doesn't work. I've also set the 7800N mac address to mirror the SR102 WAN address

Any ideas on how to improve the connection speed or has it reduced due to the number of connection restart I've made
