      Using your own router..

      I saw a while ago on the Be* forums that the forum users had a Q&A with people from Sky.

      They mentioned that Be* customers would be allowed to keep their own routers, and it was something they were going to pass onto all other Sky customers as well.

      Have Sky announced anything official on allowing their customers to use their own routers?

      We are waiting for some information on this. Sadly at the moment it isn't available.

      In the mean time there are various 'unofficial' methods to use your own router which are described on this forum.

      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB

      I was going to use my own router,When the sky one arrived I decided to use that If it hadn't of worked I would just have reverted back to my old router but tbh I haven't had a problem with it.

      I have a router running DD-WRT and use quite a lot of customisation. It would be nice if Sky would let me use it

      Whilst it is not strictly allowed, you can use DD-WRT routers on sky with no problem at all!
      Using your own router, currently, means you will have no support from Sky-chances are, if you have DD-WRT, then you probably don't need it

      Best bet if you know what you are doing is openwrt

      Re: Using your own router..

      Thanks for the info.

      Is this one of the the routers I can use to get the required information to run my own router?

      IIRC, your router sky sends needs to be using PPPoA doesn't it?
