      I want to change my sky router

      Hi i am new to this forum and need a little help please.

      I am lookiing to change my Sky router for a N router and have settled on the Belkin N+ Router.

      i have three questions

      1. Do i need a modem router or just a modem as the Belkin N+ is a router only

      2. How do i setup aa new router and is it fairly simple.

      3. Has anyone any experience of this router or is there a better one worth using.

      No need to get a new modem, just hook up the sky modem to the new router (and switch off the wireless broadcast in the sky one).

      Simply plug a network cable from the sky one to the belkin one,log into the sky one and switch off the wireles, then follow the user manual to set up the new one.

      I have actually ordered a new belkin modem router is it still easy to set up just this one and get rid of the sky router.

      Have a look at this thread-
      Non-Sky Router Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

      Sky routers are delivered as plug and play, using another router takes a bit of work.

      Do you mean your Sky router?
      If so the username is admin and password sky.
