Double checking and SKY Satellite is not fully compatible with Windows 7 nor is it fully compatible with IE8.
Since Beta was basically set on Vista that is why you had NO PROBLEMS.
RTM is more advanced. Call your support an see when they will RESET there connections so as to be 100% compliant with Windows 7 and IE8.
They played the SOS during Vista.

Minimum requirements for PCs
Operating System: Windows 2000, XP or Vista
Memory: 64MB (Windows 2000) or 128MB (Windows XP)
Processor: Pentium compatible 133 MHz (Windows 2000) or 300 MHz (Windows XP)

Browser : Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or later (supplied on Sky Broadband Installation CD)
Wired connection : A vacant Ethernet port is required

A vacant USB port is required if a Sky Wireless Adapter is purchased
The Sky wireless adapter (or "dongle") is a device that plugs into your computer and allows you to access the internet through your Sky wireless router. It plugs into the external USB port of your PC and allows you to access the internet from your computer without cabling. It's compatible with Windows 2000, XP service pack 2 and Vista (Vista users need to connect via Ethernet cable and download drivers from the Netgear website).
Picky on the OSs they are and browsers. and if you try an mess with the MTU etc etc they can-do-will shut you down or about what ever they want... Satellite Internet is known to be shady. When I had Sky Satellite Internet

The onboard Realtek NIC on my Gigabyte board (EX58-UD3R) simply will not work with any of the drivers suggested via Windows Update. Works great with the Gigabyte driver, though.

That is strange because your mobo is rated at 100% Win7 x86 or x64 .
so the win7 drivers should work. Huuuuummmm nice but strange.
Thanks for the post.

I checked several site with MS - Sky Satellite Internet - Sagem Modems.
The forums all stated that the majority of installs the people were simply using the wrong config.
(PS: I think that means the installer (home user) never read the instruction manual so as to configure correctly.)

Every time I run Windows Update it offers to "upgrade" the NIC driver. Once every couple of weeks I give in to the temptation to see if it might be a new one that actually works. It never does.

Just my luck, I guess.
