Sky Broadband Router – Netgear DG834G vs Sagem F@st 2504

Below is a comparison of two routers used by Sky Broadband (UK). I’m currently using the Sagem, mainly due to the “potential” power savings (0.7A vs 1A) and also a slight improvement in the wireless strength. If someone could provide Wattage usage that would be great (in various states).
