  • Sky Hub 2 Mod

    Saw the mod on a Youtube vid so I thought I would give it a go.




    Ordered the IPX/U.fl to RP-SMA cables and Aerials from a chinese Ebay retailer for 2.39 the pair.

    only just finished the mod and I have not tested it as of yet, but I cnnot see the signal being any worse!

    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

    Right carried out some simple testing using my mobile phone...

    Router is at the front of the building, behind the building is the garage.

    At the far end of the garage I get 1Mbps on the stock Sky router

    Same place on the Modded router 12Mbps.

      Not a bad return for 2.39!

      I think I may leave this forum, it seems to be full of the village people.​

        How about you mod that speaker upright and not have it sideways on your desk?

          I've got the stands. But in the space available that's the best solution

            With Sky, are you contracted to use only their router? I complain a lot about BT but at least I've binned the HH for something that doesn't broadcast BT-Fon and BT Wifi despite me opting out.

              supposedly yes, but lots of people use their own routers.

              I have had better ADSL2+ speeds since exchanging the sky Netgear DG834GT (running Netgear Firmware) for the Hub2.
