      Wink [Guide] How to connect DSL-N66U to Sky Fibre

      Hey guys, ive been surfing this forum and could not find how to do it.

      Figured it out myself so I thought id post on here how it is you actually do it.


      1.When you hook up your router it'll want you to connect it to "DSL". Plug in the router to your fibre line and let it finish.

      2. It will then take you to the main screen
      [Guide] How to connect DSL-N66U to Sky Fibre-untitled.jpg


      3. After then you'll need to unplug from your N66U and plug back into Sky Hub so you can then download the latest software for your DSL N66U which at the time of me typing this is 1.0.7.0 and then flash it to the DSL-N66U

      Networking - DSL-N66U

      4. After doing that you MUST hold down the reboot button for at least 10 seconds or more on the back to reboot the modem inside or it won't work

      5. When its all back on it will ask you how you want to set it up, select Sky Fibre from the drop down box instead of BT Infinity or whatever else is there.

      6. After then inside the PPP username and password, input your sky username and password used to connect to the line.

      7. When its done it'll take you back to the main screen telling you its setup... Not quite done yet.


      8. On the last page make sure MTU is set to 1500, mine didn't work until I actually did this as the default is set to 0.


      After doing that last part and clicking save at the bottom of the screen the router should display the DSL light as solid white as well as a new light that looks a lot like the Internet Explorer icon.


      Well done, you've setup the DSL-N66U on Sky Fibre!

      Please someone sticky this as it took me a while to figure it out!

      P.S How do I edit the title of the thread? I want to put in brackets [Guide]

      Hi there,

      I'm about to get Fibre Pro in a few weeks time and wanted to replace the SR102 hub with the same Asus router, so this is good news! Have you experienced anything bad about this router so far? And is it easy to set up things like port forwarding?

      Thanks in advance.

      Not experienced anything bad about this router, no! Only slightly annoying things like when I change a setting on my wireless it has to reboot both wireless antennas.

      Have not tried port forwarding yet, probably will when I go to setup some things soon

      Fab, only thing you might need to change is to put the VDSL2 profile to 17a db and not 30a because the UK doesn't support 30a apparently.

      Re: [Guide] How to connect DSL-N66U to Sky Fibre

      Looks like a great guide, I need to set up my Asus DSL N66u, I just wanted to ask which username password you are referring to, as I'm assuming it's not the sky account login? other than the sky username and password, I don't gave the username and password for the router. I take this must be the most tricky part? any advice guidance much appreciated.

      You'll need to extract the sky username and password from sky SR101/2 hub using wireshark, this the guide I used: Extract username and password from sr102

      Wow, that was quick, thanks again, and yes that makes sense now...I read somewhere about wireshark, hopefully it's not too complicated. Cheers!

      For those that managed to use the Asus DSL internal fiber modem, would you say it's better that the Sky Hub SR102 Hub, I am quite agreed with the fact it's rubbish as a router compared to others on the market, but is the modem any good? I'll let you have my verdict one I've connected (sky has really c@@ked up the install, they bought by live date forward, disconnecting my Plusnet DSL service only for me to find that I can't have by fiber road band set up till next week...poor service indeed!

      I eventually went through the OR modem and Asus Rt-N66 option, just for the ease of use and not worrying about rebooting and losing the connection.

      Hope you guys get it sorted.
