      Re: Authentication - username/password/mer?

      I have my fibre install on 13th March. My setup just now is my sky router set up as normal but wireless switched off. I then have my time capsule plugged into the router in bridge mode. I use the time capsule to create my wireless network. THe time capsule has 5ghz n capabilities so is far superior to the sky router and also backs up my macs.

      I am assuming I can keep this set up when fibre gets installed. Any thoughts?

      The Sagem 2504N will allow you to change it in much the same way as you have changed the D-link DSL-2640S (as shown in your profile), so the answer is a definite yes.

      You may even be able to use the TC to do a bit more if Sky Fibre will allow PPoE settings to be used on other equipment. This would allow direct connection to the open reach modem (although this is against sky's T&C) without having to use the sky router
