      New user - using Sky Broadband with my N router

      Hi - i am hoping someone can help me with what is probably a common issue.

      I have recently moved from BT to Sky Broadband; i have received by Sagem router from Sky. However, i want to use my NetGear 834N router. Sky Technical says it is not possible but i think it must be. Can anyone help?

      Thanks in advance
      Kevin

      Re: New user - using Sky Broadband with my N router

      You could just hook up your 'n' router to the Sky router via ethernet to use it's functions and not break any T & C's.

      You should have considered this before agreeing to the contract which forbids you using anything but the Sky supplied router to connect to their services.

      Many have and continue to use their own routers, but Sky may stop that one day.
