I am new to this forum (this is my first post!) and wondered if anyone knew if the Sky DG834GT can be used in routing mode (as opposed to nat - its default) without reflashing to standard netgear firmware (would sky realise this?), so that a decent router can be attached to it? (effectively just using the sky router as a modem).
I think it might be something to do with static routes??

Yeah hopefully some more people will be able to help too. I know it can be done on the standard Netgear's but wondered if there was any way at all it can be done with the sky firmware still intact...

The UKO Netgears do have a DMZ mode you can put them in that refers all traffic not mapped by NAT to another machine, but that could be painful with some (most) consumer-level routers. So possible, but really not a good idea.

So if I cleared all custom port redirections, and set the DMZ server to the IP of my other router, it would route all traffic from the netgear to the other router (Vigor 2800g)???

Perhaps...if you can set the WAN IP addresss of your Vigor to an IP within the 192.168.0.xxx range of the Skype supplied Netgear router...?
Not so sure about it since the 2800G does not have an Ethernet WAN port. It has an ADSL input which it use to pick up the WAN IP. This is then NAT'ed to the 4 Ethernet ports and the Wireless LAN.
