      Which router will I recieve?

      I have just ordered Sky Broadband Mid Package and was wondering which router I will recieve? I already have a Netgear RangeMax Router DG834PN and was wondering if I can use that router by just changing the username and password? Cheers.

      Sorry, how is that? Isn't it upto me what I want to use? Im sure they are not going to say "No! you WILL have to use our router"

      If I have to....I should think again before I continue with Sky

      Going by Sky's T&C's you do have to use the router they provide and in fact they do not provide you with a user name and pass word. These have to be extracted using the router Sky provide if you wish to use your own router (loads of people do, and Sky have not been concerned yet, but they may be concerned in the future)

      Depending on the router Sky send, there is a programme on this site which details how to get your username and password. You then feed these into your own router and away you go.

      Or you can just link the routers together with ethernet, complies with T&C's plus you can continue using your own

      Dont forget you will be on a slow speed to start with and DLM will kick in, the training period being about 10 days, try not to switch off your router during this period. If you can use the master telephone socket.
      While you wait, have a read of the Cable and filter faceplate sections.
