      Waiting 4 Sky Router, Wanting 2 Use Belkin Router

      Hi
      I Am Waiting For My Sky Router Which Is Delayed And My Line Is Active But Sky Said You Cant Use Other Routers As User Name And Password Are Programmed Into It. Then The Sky Tech Bloke On The Phone Unoffically Said Between Us That There Is A Way To Use My Belkin Router Now, And If I Search The Net I Will Find A Way Around It But He Couldnt Give Me Username And Password Or Anymore Info.

      Please Help As Im Missing My Connection.

      Unfortunately you'll have to wait until router turns up as the Sky routers are programmed with your username and password in them and I don't think Sky can tell you what that is, yes you can use another brand have a look in Technical.

      The answer is on here but as says above nobody knows what your username and password are that are in your Sky router and you can only extract them once you have go it. Then and only then can you then use whatever router you want as you will have the username and password details that are needed to enter into your Belkin router. Sky will not give these out over the phone.
