      Exclamation Using my own router

      I been wanting to use my own router for a while now and i have havent seem to get it to work. i have used James67 technique but no look there, i dont want to Flash my router just in case i break it and cant get it back working again.
      When i did use James67 technique on my own router it would find the server get the information but not put the internet on. on connection status on this router it said it was connected successfuly. What i would do is this, i will give you the Router Status of the router i put the settings in from james67. And i will also give you the Router Status of my Sky Router, can you also check if you see any issues with the sky router when i give you the stats just on a secound opinion saying that its work fine and that. Please also tell me some other websites where i cant get this information from.
      Thanks

      Re: Using my own router

      The upstream attenuation on the non-sky netgear is half that of the sky router - strange. In saying that, I'd say the attenuation figure on the sky router seems more accurate, and the stats look better in general.

      You'll need to extract the dsl username and password from the sky router if you wish to use the third party router - I'm not experienced in that respect, so I'll let someone else chime in to help you with that.

      Look at https://www.cm9.net/skypass/ and enter your Sky Router details. This will give you the User Name and Password you need to enter in your own router. However as the Sky router seems to be giving you better Internet than your own router why are you changing?
