      Question Can I use this router with another, non-UK ISP?

      I found this router on ebay and bid on it, now knowing it's locked. Here is the auction: REMOVED

      I live in Greece, where locked routers are unheard of, will I be able to use this router here? Or should I beg the seller to cancel my bid instead?

      Fast answers would be greatly appreaciated since the auction is ending soon.

      You will need to flash the router with the netgear image - other than that it should work ok

      You mean with the instructions found here: REMOVED ? I hope it works ok. If I understand it correctly Sky has disabled the normal procedure by which the router is flashed and that's why we need to do what the post says?

      JIMMYCZZ:

      No, I'm not the seller.

      You need to discuss this in the tech part of this forum.

      But yes, the router can be used with other isps but you need to flash it first. Help can be obtained in the tech forum if you need it

      Hmmm... It looks like the Tech Forum is off-limits for me as it requires a password...
