      Dunno about expert lol.. just a suggestion why not let the 9980 handle everything and ditch the open reach modem.... the 9980 can do your modem too...

      The one we just resolved needed the sky dns servers specified in the wan connection. Would you consider allowing the 9980 do the whole thing... If you want it to do it all you will need the beta firmware..
