      Wanadoo LiveBox

      I phoned Sky yesterday to take up their 2MB BB offer as I can't see the point of paying Orange 12.99 pm for same service as Sky can hopefully provide, fingers crossed. One initial question, can I continue to use my Wanadoo Live Box or will I need to use the new router that is in the post?

      Hi

      You have to use the router that sky provide initally! there are unsupported ways of using your own router later but you need to get some information from the existing router first! you can check out the tech forum for more information if you wish!

      Welcome to the site melanddave

      No you have to use the supplied SkyBB router but as has been said by James there are posts you may want to read in the tech forum since the sort of discussions that go on in there are not allowed in the main forum.

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
