      The log in details are unique to the Sky Router.

      If you previously used say a D-Link 2630S, then I think you'll find it's details won't work. However if you were using a Sagem 2504N, Sky Hub SR101 or SR102, then you should have no issues.

      The DSL-N66U does work with Sky Fibre. I think that you need to have a specific firmware (please check the threads).

      Yes.

      Sky's ADSL service uses PPPoA and/or MER. The Fibre services require that the log in details use Opt,#61.

      Other than that, all should be fine.
