      Unhappy Sky fibre with Netgear D7800 - OpenWRT firmware upgrade

      Hi all

      Firstly, I must admit a major faux par on my part!

      Having successfully set up my Netgear D7800 nighthawk router to work on the sky fibre network using option 61, I neglected to take the solid advice of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'!

      So out of curiosity I decide to flash the firmware with OpenWRT - all flashed fine but now I have no idea of how to set the modem/router up to work so have had to reconnect the skyQ router.

      Does anyone have any configuration ideas of how to set the D7800 up again?

      I tried resetting the firmware back to stock but cannot do now that it has the OpenWRT f/w installed.

      Thanks in advance!
