      Use another router on SKY?

      Hello,

      I want to ditch the router that sky sent me, it is the black Netgear (think its a dg834g wireless). The firmware on the router is 2.02.44.

      Is it straightforward to use your own router? Im thinking about buying a Netgear wired dg834 v3.

      1. If you buy a DG834 V3 it'll perform the same as the sky router if you have the DG934G as they are essentially the same router in a different box.
      2. To use your own take a look at the extracting router passwords section in the forum

      Why not just switch off the wireless on the Sky router?, I assume you want a wired router because of your hack concerns?
