      Sky say not connected BT says Easynet

      A friend of mine is having a battle with sky/BT for a few months now. Sky say he's not connected but BT say he's connected to Easynet. I took my router up there earlier and it synced AND logged in and got an Easynet IP address and surfed the net using the easynet/sky IP. We phoned sky and they said he's not connected, So I said that we will just get a cheap sky router from ebay and surf for free, At this point he then said he would sort it out and chase up whats wrong and send out a router. Now we've been told for the last 4-6 weeks that a routers being sent out but everytime we chase it up they say sorry they can not send a router as your not connected to SKy.

      So who is your "friend" being billed by? If he isn't, then I would just milk it and rinse those suckers for as long as possible.

      Absolutely genius! Gotta get me some of that sweet sweet free broadband!

      Edit: I'm willing to bet that some poor guy also connected to that exchange is waiting on a tie pair shift because someone has put the cables in the wrong ports. It would explain why Sky say it's never been connected. The problem is that someone else who's probably paying for service is connected to the port that's never been connected! Let's hope you don't believe in karma...

      Lets just say, hope he does not get an issue with the connection and have to call sky or the MAC on the router gets suspended.
