      BT Home Hub or Netgear Router ?

      Hi All,
      Recently signed up to Sky BB Unlimited and today I have received my Netgear Router from Sky.
      My question is, is it worth the hassle of changing from the BT Home Hub to the Netgear one, also will I still be able to connect to Sky BB throught the BT hub once my contract with BT ends.
      Thanks

      you have to use the Sky router as per T&Cs...unless you hack the HomeHub (don't ask how I've no idea!!)...

      Hacking the BTHH is not necessary. If you find out (on this site) how to extract your username and password from the Sky Router (it's hard wired into the router), you can enter that straight into the BTHH!

      But, as IAmNotThe Enemy says, it is strictly against the T&C!

      The older white ones are/were locked down. The newer black ones(V2), I still have two of 'em, are not!
