      Keep an eye on the FAQ and the SBUF forum for information on using your own router on the SBUF connection. There is a link in the FAQ to a site that provides information on hacking the BTO Modem already. It hasn't been confirmed whether it works for Sky as we don't know the basics completely just yet.

      The BTO Modem isn't new. Other ISPs, including BT Retail with the Infinity package, have been using it for a while now. What does need confirming is whether Sky will have the same model supplied for their connections and whether the firmware is the same.

      Also BTO give it an IP Address of 192.168.1.1 for everyone else. Will this be the same for Sky?

      Lots of questions, just a few answers.

      The members who have been helping put the FAQ together have been really good in helping get them together so a big thanks to them all.

      Re: How to get it

      indeed, thanks to them.
      I know I need a new modem even though this is new. nothing is good or trusty as my old modem from sky (NeatGear D834GT I believe... the white one!)
      the modem I have (new black sky ones) doesnt perform as good as that one

      To the best of my knowledge the latest firmware updates doesn't allow any, except the Sagem 2504N, to be used on the FTTC connection, but who knows

      The Sagem 2504N does have a better WiFi connection speed to the Netgear DG834GT. It should also offer a better signal strength.
