      Broadband SuperFast and ASUS Router

      I wanted to stick with my pricy ASUS RT-AC5300 router, rather than replace it with the Sky ER110 router they sent me. As this took me quite a while to sort out, I thought I would share how I have it set up and working, for anyone else wanting to do similar.



      1. You must have the Merlin firmware loaded on your ASUS router. Don't worry - it is permitted by ASUS, and probably even recommended! Without this, you can't use the router on Sky. Get it here - https://www.asuswrt-merlin.net. Make sure you download the correct version for your model. If it ain't there - forget any chance of using your ASUS modem on Sky.
      2. Go onto the WAN page and enter the following which works. Change details if you wish but this is proven to get you on:

      Name Setting Notes
      WAN Connection Type Automatic IP
      Enable WAN Yes
      Enable NAT Yes
      Enable UPnP Yes
      Enable secure UPnP mode Yes
      UPNP: Allowed internal port range 1024 to 65535
      UPNO: Allowed external port range 1 to 65535
      Connect to DNS Server automatically Yes
      Forward local domain queries to upstream DNS No
      Enable DNS Rebind protection No
      Enable DNSSEC support No
      Prevent client auto DoH Auto
      DNS Privacy protocol None
      Authentication None Important!
      Host Name Leave blank
      WAN MTU 1500
      Mac Address MAC address of your Sky ER100
      DHCP query frequency Aggressive Mode
      Manual client (Option 61) <Er100 Mac address>@skydsl|<1234567> You MUST have the Merlin firmware to be able to enter this field. Don't enter the < > characters! Not sure if the actual Mac address or password matter as long as you have the @skydsl text and then the |delimiter in the middle. If you want to be sure, get your password as described here -
      Manual Vendor class (Option 60) Leave blank
      Extend the TTL value No
      Spoof LAN TTL value Yes


      That should do it. Good luck.
