      Is backupsettings.conf file ok!

      Hi Guys,

      Just received my new Sky Hub router and I would like to know if the "backupsettings.conf" from my old D-Link router would be suitable to upload to my new Sky Hub.

      In a word - No. If the new router was based on a Dlink, maybe, but as it is not it will not accept the file.

      I'd think that the backup and restore procedure would be down to an individual router model and nothing else.
