      Wireless Secured

      The router comes with security enabled as standard and is very secure.
      to make it more secure, do the following..............

      change logon admin to anthing else
      cange password from Sky to anthing else
      change SSID SkyXYZA to somthing Else
      Change the network key to somthing else
      enable Mac filtering.
      disable the Wan ping
      disable wireless broadcasting
      If your wireless adapter?network card Supports WPA stick with it. its much more secure than WEP

      This has nothing to do with what i was talking about, and would not stop it anyway.

      I think I may have verified that this is true...I've got my Sky router plugged into a dual-wan router (Edimax BR-6524). This is so that I can run it in parallel with my Zen broadband connection. I found that I couldn't get an internet connection via Sky until I configured the Edimax WAN port to use the same MAC address as the Sky/Netgear router.

      I have other problems however - i.e. fairly frequently some of the PCs on my LAN lose web connectivity for several minutes. This doesn't affect all PCs at the same time, however - if I get the problem on one machine I can generally get access from another until the first one regains its connectivity. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the Edimax router or the Sky connection. Has anyone else tried anything similar?

      How do you know your sky connection has not completely failed and the other pcs are just using your other internet connection. In order to test if there is a problem with sky i would disconnect your other service and jusy use sky alone for a while and see if the problem persists

      I tend to use the Sky connection for extended periods from a laptop via wireless (bypassing the Edimax router). Haven't had any problems working that way so far. Not very scientific I know, but I'm pretty sure that the problem lies somewhere in the Sky/Edimax setup.

      Probably havent got a clue what I am talking about , but what if you do a tracert to www.skyuser.co.uk
      Wouldn't that indicate whether you are going via Sky or your other provider?

      Assuming there are no delays, my skybb activation date is tomorrow. I will post back here to let you know if the router works with it.
      I have managed to get my non-sky DG834GT router to spoof the sky DG834GT ADSL mac address. Despite ADSL connecting and synching OK, the router's connection status still shows as Disconnected. Manual attempts to reconnect still fail.

      Assuming authentication is based solely on the router's mac address, then either I've made a typo somewhere or there needs to be other changes made to the router's config.

      Any thoughts?

      what were you using as the username and password. the sky confog file for this is:

      #< Get Dynamically From ISP >
      [20301]"Account Name"=
      [20302]"Domain Name"=
      #< Static IP Address >
      [20401]"IP Address"=
      [20402]"IP Subnet Mask"=
      [20403]"Gateway IP Address"=
      #< Domain Name Server (DNS) Address >
      # 0ff 1n
      [20601]"Use These DNS Servers"=0
      [20602]"Primary DNS"=
      [20603]"Secondary DNS"=
      #< Router MAC Address >
      # MAC address
      [20701]"Use This MAC Address"=
      etc.......

      Odd thing is no password is listed - i wonder if sky have hardcoded a passowrd into the routers firmware.

      Have a look at your non-sky router config and see how it compares

      Note quite sure why smiley faces appeared but still.

      One other thing to check - is did your router accept your configed mac address. what does it show up as when you do a cmd ipconfig /all
