      Here is a guide to setup AEBS to replace Sky Sagem router

      Preparation (Requires original sky router still set up)

      1) Calculating your sky user-name and password

      1.1) Go to Sky Broadband Password Calculator - pH-Mb

      1.2) Select "Sagem f@st"

      1.3) enter the mac address from the sky routers status page (wan connection)

      1.4) enter the sky routers default wireless key and click calculate

      1.5) create the final key by adding the user-name and password together (user-name|password), you will end up with a key like 123456789012@skydsl|1234567890123456

      ================================================== ===================================

      Setting up AEBS

      1.6) Get Airport Utility 5.6. There are 3 options to choose from depending on your OS

      OSX Lion
      OSX Mountain Lion - either follow the instructions or get the unpackaged version

      1.7) open APU 5.6

      1.8) click manual setup

      1.9) click "Internet". Select Ethernet for "Connect Using" Select Share a public IP address for "Connection Sharing"

      2.0) click "TCP/IP". Select Using DHCP for "Configure IPv4"

      2.1) input your extracted username and password in the "DHCP Client ID" field in the format exampled above.

      2.2) click "DHCP". Select your preferred DHCP Beginning and Ending Address

      2.3) click Update

      After this the AEBS will reboot, leave it a min and it should present you with an IP address and you will be connected
