      Is anyone using a WNDR3700 on DD-WRT that could report whether bandwidth is limited, or indeed improved over hooking up the Sky router to the WMDR's LAN port?

      I've just managed to get an Airport Express working so now I plan to get an Airport Extreme.

      I had to use an older version of Airport Utility which allowed me to set DHCP client ID but otherwise it was very straight forward.

      Maybe you could do a 'How To' I and post it here? I am sure there would be a lot interested as the Airports are very popular on the forum.

      No problem, I'll sort one out. TBH though as long as you have the older version of Airport Utility that allows you to enter DHCP client ID it's really simple. You just enter the username and password from the generator separated by with a | .

      Re: Known Working Third Party Routers With Sky Fibre

      Hello Peeps,

      Just thought I'd add that Asus DarkNight RT-N66U router with Merlin Firmware works fine. Got 2x xbox 360s playing COD, 2x PS3's and PC/iPAD/iDevices all happily doing there thing. Important note though, xbox and PS3 performance is laggy when more than one console online playing COD or something. It's only when I configured QOS that the lag went away. I set the QOS for XBOX/PSN as high priority based on port only. I also setup HTTP/HTTPS to normal priority (set to highest by default) which seemed to make a difference.

      All the consoles are wired and WLAN'ed. No issues so far and the DarkNight's WLAN peformance has been pretty good so far on 2.4GHz...on 5Ghz is does around 240Mbps transfer rate when copying files from a Synology DS212+ to MacBook Pro late 2011. Built-in FW does a good enough job on default settings. PortForwarding is a manual job of hunting down the ports required and forwarding them on.
