      SR101 no internet light with fibre

      I am trying to use my old SR101 Hub (white) to connect to the internet. My line is fine as it worked no problem with the black hub I received.
      As soon as I plug the old sky hub in, the internet light doesn't show at all. I have searched most of today for a solution but not sure what else to do. I rang sky but they said that the SR101 hub I have doesn't work with fibre, I don't see why not though.

      It doesn't have a VDSL modem built in. The SR102 does.

      Why do you want to use the SR101 and not the 102?

      It will work with fibre, but only when connecting through a BTO(vDSL) Modem. You can pick one up on eBay quite cheaply if you want to try it. I can't really think why you should, although there is not much in it, the SR101 is inferior to the SR102.
