      Using a different router on SKY BB

      I recently swapped to sky and have been quite happy. However i get a very weak wifi signal downstairs. I used a very good dlink router with my previous isp and had no problems. So i thought why not just use the dlink with sky? So i ring up and ask how i swap routers as i dont have the required info to set up the dlink. Sky tell me i cant use the dlink and they cant supply a better router!!!

      Is there anyway round this?

      yes, use James's utility to get you username and password, remember it breaches Sky's T&C's but I don't think anyone has had a problem yet.

      You will need to refit the Sky router if/when you have a problem as that is the only one they will support.
