      Here is what I did, following your instructions, in case anyone finds this thread and wants to do the same:

      1. Obtain the (Sky) Sagem's external MAC address following these instructions

      ...



      Would this work with the Dlink DIR850L and the sagem router ???

      il getting lost so help appreciated

      pplcooper: I've removed the over-quoted text.

      Please also refrain from asking the same question in two different threads more or less at the same time. Tom has answered your question here: Using the DLink DIR613.

      Re: Using Sagem 2504 as modem & Asus RT-N56U as router

      Hi

      I've got Sagem 2504n, which I've had for about 5 years I guess. I've been having issues with my smartphone wi-fi at home being pretty poor. As well as this my broadband (sky unlimited) has been dropping every now and then. (only green coloured lights on the router but a reset always seemed to get it back working again.)

      Because of these problems, and the age of the router. I thought I'd buy a new router from amazon. I got an Asus RT-AC51U for 25, and thought I'd just have to get a few details from the Sagam and plug them into the Asus and I'd be good to go. I'm now reading that I'd still have to have the Sagem as a modem, and then do some of the other things in this thread. I'm not particularly technical but have followed plenty of guides online and fixed many issues with my computer, so I am happy to give this a go too if I have to.

      So my question is, will it be worth it?

      Would I be better getting an upgrade to Sky Fibre? Would that cost much? I'm in S London. I currently get about 8 mbs down 1 mbs up, which seems okay.

      Is the Sky Hub good, or would I need to buy an upgrade to that as well?

      If I do stick with Sky unlimited, would it be better to send the Asus back and get a modem/router combined? ANy recommendations?

      I'm not obsessed with fast speeds, but just want a solid, quick, reliable set up, and am willing to pay a reasonable amount for it.

      Thanks
