      Installation cd

      Hi may seem a strange question but is there anything essential on the cd that is supposed to come with the router, as mine shipped without one for some reason and i dont fancy spending hours on the phone to sky to try and get one!

      Also slightly OT but does the router not like the standard netgear firmware? or do i have to use modded firmware?

      Many thanks.

      There is nothing essential on the CD whatsoever, unless you want to install McAfee AV.

      As for the firmware, you should really use the firmware that comes on the Sky router, as that was what it was designed for. However we all accept that the Sky firmware may not be the most stable.

      No problems

      You could always ask Sky to send you one, so you too can have a coaster like my avatar

      Don't use the CD for anything other than a coaster (unless you want McAfee - and why should you when you can legally get free firewalls and AV software?). It hijacks your Internet Explorer home page to be the Sky broadband home page. I had no intention of running the CD but tried it as a desperate measure when my connection didn't work after activation.
