      Activated a week ago & still waiting

      Hi all,

      We've been waiting for a week to get online with Sky, and after many calls to their tech support, they are sending us a new router.

      While we're waiting, is it possible to connect to the web either through a Belkin router or through a BT Homehub?

      Many thanks for your help.

      You will find your MAC address and your WPA key printed under your router. Go to this page and click fast 2504 and input these. You will then be given your sky username and password.

      Your belkin should work with your user\pass along with the following settings:

      Encapsulation: PPPoA
      VPI/VCI: 0/38
      Multiplexing: VC

      It is against Skys T&Cs to use your own router but nobody cares really.
