sky Router question
Im currently with bt until i get transfered to sky on 20/9/06 (received sky letter today telling me date)
Router got deilvered yesterday.
Can i use this router with my bt bb or will it only work with sky bb?
I tried to connect it up today, installed software from sky cd and i cant connect to internet. All the lights are on as they should be, eg ,power, wireless, internet, and 1 showing my pc is connected.
I disconnected the sky router and plugged in my old belkin and connected fine.
Will i get a letter from sky telling me my email and password etc?
Have people been transfered on time? eg their activation date?
Is there any special procedure i should follow on the day of activation?
Do i have to wait for a 10 day training period like when i upgraded to bt adsl max for the speed to settle down? Should i power down or leave to router connected and powered up over the training period if it applies?

you can only use the sky router with the sky connection

There is no training period for LLU. If you have poor sync speeds then it's up to you to mess around with different sockets/filters until you get the best sync speed.

Welcome to the site ninja69
As dingdong has said it will only work with SkyBB if you log into the admin on the router http://192.168.0.1 username/password admin/sky you can check the log to see whats happening
I would change the default password if I was as well.Ray
Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
If you would like to know the straight line distance to your exchange then
Would you like an idea of the possible speeds you will get with the Max Package then click here or for the Connect Package then click here

Instreseting to see the router discussions continue. I have jsut spoken to Sky BB Sales who did not know we had to use the Sky router until I told him the paragraphs to look at. Even after that he still insisted i could use my own until i again pointed out that i did not have the usrename/passwords i needed. A soory state of affiars and he then told me I was the frist to cancel my Sky BB becuase of this issue!!

If you connected via your old router it is unlikely that the connection was Sky. Are you sure you were live with Sky? Could it have been your old ISP. Or had you aquired your sky router log in to use with your BT router?
