      wow, Andrewjr! what an instructions.

      MarJohn56 has convinced me to to buy BTO Huwaei HG612, you have convinced me to buy an apple router.

      Question would Apple Airport Express would work as well?

      Damn, its only 802.11n capable!

      It's possible, but for 200 I wouldn't get an AirPort Extreme, I would go for a Asus RT-88U (cable modem 245) or perhaps an DSL-88U (same as the RT but with a VDSL/ADSL modem 210-220) depending on what you are looking for.

      Personally I have an Netgear R7000 with X-WRT on it (and a HG612). These suit my needs just fine.

      I have used an AirPort Extreme since the 'flat' version some years ago which is what this guide was written for.

      Have a read through some of the other threads on here to find out others experiences with various 'Sky' compatible routers

      Thanks Andrewjr,

      The thing is Apple Time Capsule 2TB reconditioned from Apple's website can be purchased (when available) for 149, which is idential to Airport Extreme. from what I have read from your instructions it looks like a piece of cake to setup.

      Oh Well I just bought a Huawei HG612 3b from ebay for 14ish. if you have read somewhere that the Apple routers are troublesome then I need to look somewhere else.

      Sorry for the late reply. I never had a problem with my AEBS and haven't heard about any problems with the latest versions.
