Hi I decided to give up on SENSE and am in the process of refund. I found the whole experience quite frustrating and decided it wasn't what I expected and that what I have in place is adequate for my needs. However in answer to your questions I can't give you a model/make for my router other than tell you it is the standard dsl home router type B provided by British Telecom. I placed the SENSE router where I normally use an extender to cover the upper house. The signal was not as good as the extender and of course connecting my PC to the SENSE router gave me a poorer connection on my PC. Moving the SENSE router nearer to the primary router and my PC gave me a better wifi connection but much poorer in the upper house. I have Skype on PC. Neither an ethernet connection nor a wifi connection to my primary router was a problem. The primary router is next to my PC. When connected by wifi to the SENSE router, Skype kept dropping out. Using the Skype log showed it disconnected every two or three minutes with several attempts to connect before connecting for a short period. This appeared to be less of a problem when the SENSE router was closer to the primary router but still made Skype unusuable. There wasn't any point in connecting the SENSE router by cable unless it enabled me to place the SENSE router where I could make use of it around the house. Setting it up as primary router I would see as a similar problem. I presume an equipment has to be connected to it to be protected? I didn't try connecting extenders to the SENSE router which I presume would work? Would the extenders still be secure? It isn't clear whether this would work or whether just having the SENSE router somewhere in the network provides protection. Does everything have to be connected through the SENSE router to get protection? The only application with an obvious problem was Skype however download speed to my PC when checked was reduced to less than 5Mbps through the SENSE router. It is normally not much better than 7Mbps. Anyway it wasn't for me and I gave up on it! Brian

I have a Sense router on a wifi connection to my original router. I've had problems with Skype on my PC since switching to the Sense network. I don't have a problem when on an ethernet connection nor wifi to my original router but with Sense, Skype keeps dropping out. There has been a problem with Skype recently but that has now been resolved according to Microsoft but the symptoms are the same with Skype constantly reverting to 'connecting' status. The fact that it only occurs while connected to Sense would appear to indicate some conflict. Any thoughts?
