      Not unless there is DD-WRT firmware available for it. It will not connect using Netgear firmware. The only way you can use it without updated firmware would be to piggy back it on to the Sky router.

      You could connect it, via the Ethernet WAN port, to the Sky router.

      Disable the Sky router's WiFi and set the IP Address of the N900 as the DMZ Server and all should be reasonably fine.

      See this guide for a better explanation and instructions on how to do it:
