      Question New Customer Question

      Hi all,

      I am just about to change my father-in-law over to Sky BB unlimited. Can anyone confirm which router he will get and if so can the username and password be extracted from it as he wants to use his existing set-up.

      Thanks in advance

      Sagem 2504N is the standard router supplied to everyone at the moment.

      Yes it is possible to get the login username & password from the router (see this section: Extracting Sky Router passwords ) but sky uses a non-standard version of MER and currently there is only one non-sky router which will support MER on it's own firmware with an ADSL connection. Sky also use PPPoA which other routers do support, but in some cases the line will only use one or the other now, not both.

      The alternative would be to use the Sky router effectively as a Modem and to add a Cable router.

      Summary of specs for the Sagem 2504N:

      • 100mb LAN
      • WiFi N - 144mb/s, single channel
      • 4 LAN Ports

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      To be fair it's a solid little router I've been on sky 6 months and I've never lost sync only auth twice recently
