      Sky ER115 but want to use Asus DSL AC88U...

      Hi, I had Sky Fibre installed to get a better deal than BT Infinity which I was with previously. I have Sky Q and Sky sent me an ER115 router. Its really crap and im getting half the speeds I was getting on Infinity. I literally live next door to the BT box and always previously got around 77meg down and 19meg up. I am getting about 30meg down and 12meg up now. Also the wireless doesnt fully reach around the house.

      I have purchased the Asus DSL AC88U and would like to get it working. Is it possible and do I have to install the Merlin firmware? Do I have to extract a username and password?

      Any help gratefully received.

      My friend used Wireshark and he said the username/password are now encrypted, is that right?

      See this thread http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/extra...ur-router.html namely my comment at the top of the page about it not being a requirement to extract the username/password combo anymore for Sky Fibre.
