      Username/Password not working with my own DSL router

      I need to use my own Netgear router as I need 4 ethernet ports to connect devices to. The Sagem router that Sky provided only allows me to use 3, since 1 is taken up for fibre broadband.

      I managed to get my username/password from the Sagem router by hacking into it. I have out these details into my Netgear router, however I cannot get connected. The internet light remains on amber & doesn't turn green.

      What could be the problem?

      Thanks.

      Sky's MER is the problem, AFAIK only Billion have release a firmware that will work with Sky's BB packages. Modems that can handle DD WRT can be used as well.

      If these are not available to you why not just turn the netgear router into a switch and connect it to the sky router that way you would have 5 available ports (2 on the sky router and 3 on the netgear router).

      Have a look at this http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/askin...-together.html
