      Question Sky Router upgrade to a WR1043ND.... HELP

      Hi all,

      I am having a problem setting this up. I have the username and password and I have the new router (WR1043ND) to replace the sky router (F@ST2504n), because I need gigabit.

      I have good networking knowledge, but this is a new one to me and I would love some one to run through what I need to do.

      P.s. I am only on standard broadband and not on fibre YET

      I don't think that is an ADSL router, in which case you cannot connect it direct to Sky ADSL Broadband. With suitable firmware you could connect it to Sky Fibre broadband. If the router is prefixed 'TD' it is ADSL. if it is prefixed 'TL' it is a cable router.

      Hi yes that you are right, I completely forgot about :S. It is a TL-WR1043ND and it is not a ADSL router.

      Is there any work around .

      The only thing you can do is piggy back it on to the Sky router - Have a look at these threads.

      How to connect two Routers together

      Using the DLink DIR613.

      If you do get fibre, it will work OK connected direct to the BTO modem.

      Thanks. I thought that might be the case, so I just got a switch for the time being
