      New Router

      Hi Guys,
      My old white Sky router gave up the ghost Saturday evening, no connection to router but have telephone line.
      Phone Sky Sunday morning they are going to send me a replacement router sometime this week.
      The question is will i have to through that router test again with the new router or can i carry on as normal.

      DLM configures your line, not the router, so don't worry about that.

      Unfortunately I am a little upset that you were advised to expect a replacement router this week. Many customers are having to wait much longer. Replacement routers are currently expected between 5-10 days.

      You may find that the dodgy router has caused your line to be capped lower, if it is a call to Sky should get it fixed.

      Don't hold your breathe waiting on the replacement router

      Re: New Router

      My D Link router (sky) is causing phone and bb problems, Rang Sky on 11th and they said they will send a replacement out in 3-5 days, it's now the 19th and no router, checked in "My Sky" and it shows a replacement router ordered on the 11th but still shows "We are currently processing your order" so looks like they've not even allocated one yet. Indeed the waiting times are a lot longer than Sky quote!!
