      Swopping Sky Routers

      Hello

      This is my first here. I am asking for assistance on behalf of my friend who is a Sky User. His Sky Router (Netgear) which he had for 5 years has come to the end of its useful life. I happen to have a spare one since I gave up Sky about 3 years ago. Can my router replace my friend's router bearing in mind the preset SKYID and NETWORK KEY being different. I would be grateful for some advice on whether or not this is possible and if so I would like some guidance on the configuration side of things please.

      Thanking you in advance for your assistance.

      Kind regards


      Christopher Wyer

      Just plug it in and if the user details have not been removed from Sky's database, it will work.

      Hi Tom

      Thanks for the prompt response. When you say the user details are you referring to my friend's or mine?

      Thank you.

      Kind regards

      The user details belong to the router and not any particular user. Any Sky router will work in any broadband enabled Sky line.
