      Newbie: Need Router advice

      Hi,

      I'm in the process of adding Sky Broadband to my parents Sky TV package.
      (Currently trying to remove an 'incompatible' service on the BT line)

      Anyway, from a glance around the boards it looks like Sky dont just bung you a username/password and let you get on with it?

      Will Sky send me a router when I order? Or do I have to buy this as well?

      I am looking to get the 'free' (Ha! 75 setup fee!) Base service, as 2GB will be fine for my parents.

      Thanks for any pointers.

      Floob.

      Ah, I see I get a router free.

      Sky.com - Sky Products>Broadband>Prices and Options>Sky Broadband Base

      Is it mine, or is Sky renting it to me?

      I'm off to check out some threads that show how to find my username/password on the router.

      It's not rented and why are you looking at cracking the router before you even get it??

      To be prepared.

      If its mine - why do Sky care what I do to it?
      I'm not clear if they mind you using your own equipment or not?

      It's against the T&C's to use a different router, however many people do, but if you want to do this it is strictly at your own risk.
