      Did you buy these Routers second hand from eBay? Or did you buy them directly from Sky?

      When you've got that many Sky Routers and they all work out of the box then I'm assuming you didn't get cut off for using multiple Sky Routers and Iím assuming that this isn't against the terms & conditions.

      Re: Sky Routers

      All bought from eBay. I only plugged them in for a few minutes when I received them to make sure they synced. If I had tried to flash them first and they then failed to connect, I would have had no comeback on the seller.

      As I have said before, if you buy a router from someone who has bought their own router and is using the Sky router details, then there could be a problem. I don't know how the system would react to 2 routers logging in with the same details. I would think one would be rejected, but I don't know for sure. Try and buy one from someone who says they have left Sky broadband and you will not have that problem.

      This sounds like a possible answer for me to get rid of this Sagem sh**e they have just sent me to replace my broken Netgear. They didn't charge me anything despite being out of warranty (by 2 years lol) but what a pile of c**p it is.
