      Sky uses both Royal Mail and Parcel force. When sending via Royal Mail they use the 'Tracked' service, but no signature is required.

Until the new router is 'cracked' the only possible way to get a username and password would be to get them from an ADSL router. If that does not work then anyone with the new router will be stuck with it, they will not be able to use their own. It would be useful if someone could try the details from their old ADSL router on their fibre connection, to prove/disprove that they work.
      Just tried the username/password from my old ADSL router on my 8200N and it connected OK so it looks like it doesn't matter whether they come from a fibre or ADSL router.
