Re: Do I have to use Sky's Modem?
Ok, in there terms and conditions it says you do have to use the sky router. How ever there is some technical side of this. There routers use an authentication code to connect to their servers. So their servers only allow there modem routers to connect..... How ever all you need to do is get their servers to think that your modem router is a sky one.
To do this you can Flash the sky router and look into the code on the box and get the user code for the box. This will be something like email@example.com and a password.
If you then put this information into your custome router Username and Password. The servers will see it as a Sky Router and they know no difference.
I've been using a non sky router for about 8 months now no problem.
Details to flash the box and retreieve the information can be found here for a sagem sky router......

Or there are loads of stuff on google if you search flashing Sky Router.
Hope this helps somebody.
