      Sky BB Router on AOL

      Hi,

      I have Sky BB all working ok, so this question is for a friend.

      I have a spare Sky BB router (the cream Netgear one) that my Father-in-law had (he now with another ISP) - and a friend of mine is on AOL, with a normal broadband router (modem?)

      I was just wondering if its possible to configure the Sky router to be used on AOL -so that she can use the wireless connectivity?

      Thanks in advance
      Rob

      Yes but you will need to flash the router with the Netgear firmware to turn it into a standard router again.

      Have a look at the threads on this site there are lots of them.
