      Piggy back or replace?

      Hi,

      I want to use my old netgear router and read that it is possible to piggy back off the sky router without breaking any of the T/Cs .I was wondering how easy this is to do/ is there a guide. I'm pretty confused as to what to do in terms of passwords and even connecting them.

      If not would it be more sensible just to swap them? I know how to get the password from (https://www.cm9.net/skypass/) but where do I enter this when I have connected my old router.

      Thanks in advance for any help

      Have a look at this thread -
      Using Sky router as modem and N router for Wi Fi - How to?

      If you want to replace the Sky router, please start a thread in the Technical Help - Asking for help section.
