      Which router?

      I have just joined sky broadband from tiscali and go live on June 7th. I have just recived my sagem router from sky, but before i plug things in, can i just keep my netgear router that i brought myself and use that when sky kicks in?
      Many thanks for any info.

      You're gonna need to extract the username and password from the sagem to use the netgear (link below) -

      Extracting Sky Router passwords

      It is against the terms and conditions to use a third party router with sky, but it's not something they really care about nor have they ever cut anyone off to date it would seem.

      Just bear in mind that if you need any technical support, they cannot/will not assist unless you are using the Sky supplied router, which incidentally is perfectly fine.

      Would you say that the sky sagem router was better than the netgear DG834T that i have at the moment?

      Its recommended that you use the Sky router during the 10 day DLM process because using a foreign router could cause false speeds meaning DLM capping your connection.
