      2504N config

      Hi All, I am a new subscriber to Sky BB moving from a 5 year stint with Talk Talk.

      My Activation is due to happen on 05/01/12

      Sagecom 2504N arrived today, which I am aware I should not connect until the 5th but I have a few queries which I hope someone can help with.

      What’s with the different colours on the Lan ports ? I currently use 3 and will need to use 4 as the only reason I have switched to Sky is for the Anytime +

      Also I have 11 wireless devices linked to my current router so would much prefer to change the wireless details of the SKY router to match that of my existing TT router, thus avoiding the need to reconfigure 11 different devices.

      Can anyone please explain if this can be done in the 2504N config pages and if it can a brief guide on where I need to go. If not could I just reconfigure my existing TT router to connect to the Sky BB servive

      Many Thanks

      The colouring of the ports is supposed to indicate that it will give preferential service to some forms of traffic.

      • Green - Sky+ HD STB (Anytime+)
      • Blue - "Future development"
      • Yellow - Computers (PC & MAC)

      Whilst there are only 4 ports available, you are more than welcome to add a Network Switch or perhaps use your old TalkTalk router to extend the connections.

      As for the SSID & Network Key, personally I would advice that you change them both as the default Sky passkey is 8 random capital letters. You may change it to whatever you wish.

      If you really want to mimic the TalkTalk settings, then take a look at the security settings too. WPA2-PSK is the more up to date & secure encryption system. WEP is not secure. If the security is different it can confuse some devices, so you will need to redo all your WiFi connections anyway.
