      want to use another router?

      OK i know sky really only want customers to use there router however if i had to go down this route

      1. would they know i am using a different router.
      2. would any router work say bt voyager 2110.
      3. is just entering the user name and password all that i needed for setup.
      4. would i notice any difference in terms of speed stability.
      5. what might the penalties be if iam found out at sky.

      i would like to here from others who perhaps have had some experience of
      doing this. what they think i just really hate this sagem its the most useless
      bit of crap ever

      not saying i am going to do this just thinking about it.

      1. Yes
      2. Any ADSL router (i.e. with inbuilt modem) should work provided it isn't "locked" to an ISP
      3. That and a couple of other parameters (VPI, VCI)
      4. Who knows? Probably not
      5. In theory they could terminate your service. Hasn't happened yet.

      Please don't tack your query onto another members thread - especially as you already have one here
