      Can I use a different router?

      I have had so many problems the last few days with my Sagem router I was wondering can I use my own? Sky are supposed to be sending me a replacement free but I was thinking I might get better speeds with a higher spec router.

      It is against Skys T&C but.... There seems a school of thought that you can use a different router. You would need to extract your user name and password, so read here Getting your V1 and V2 router passwords - the safe way
      It is handy to have a back up router for just such an occasion as you described.

      The answer is yes and no. You can use your own router BUT you will be breaking your contractual agreement with Sky where you agreed to use the Sky router. If you use your own router you will you will need to obtain your user name and password https://www.cm9.net/skypass/
