      thanks

      I don't see why not as long as you were able to successfully extract the password.

      Re: Airport Extreme Base Station + Sky Fibre Guide

      Thanks Dragon, I was wanting to know if it was possible to extract (get) the username and password from the latest sky hub aka SR101. Has anyone done so? Will the username and password from my previous sky ADSL routers work, the dg834GT and one that looks like a mini sky hd box?
      thanks

      You are an absolute star. this works like a dream. My only fear is getting around with this once AU 5.6 stops working on one of the future OS versions. I wonder why all these manufacturers and providers are hell bent on restricting us in this fashion.

      Preparation (Requires original sky router still set up)

      1) Calculating your sky user-name and password

      1.1) Go to Sky Broadband Password Calculator - pH-Mb

      1.2) Select "Sagem f@st"

      1.3) enter the mac address from the sky routers status page (wan connection)

      1.4) enter the sky routers default wireless key and click calculate

      1.5) create the final key by adding the user-name and password together (user-name|password), you will end up with a key like 123456789012@skydsl|1234567890123456

      ================================================== ===================================

      Setting up AEBS

      1.6) Get Airport Utility 5.6. There are 3 options to choose from depending on your OS

      Windows
      OSX Lion
      OSX Mountain Lion - either follow the instructions or get the unpackaged version

      1.7) open APU 5.6

      1.8) click manual setup

      1.9) click "Internet". Select Ethernet for "Connect Using" Select Share a public IP address for "Connection Sharing"

      2.0) click "TCP/IP". Select Using DHCP for "Configure IPv4"

      2.1) input your extracted username and password in the "DHCP Client ID" field in the format exampled above.

      2.2) click "DHCP". Select your preferred DHCP Beginning and Ending Address

      2.3) click Update

      After this the AEBS will reboot, leave it a min and it should present you with an IP address and you will be connected

      ================================================== ========================================

      Thanks to ScotsLaddie for being the first to find this out and to Apache14 for the extracting username and password steps that I pinched from a guide of his

      Hello all.

      Can anyone confirm that the airport extreme works with Sky Fibre using the guide in this thread?

      Thanks

      There should be no technical reason for you not being able to use the AE instead of the Sky Hub SR101. The only different to note would be how you go about getting the log in details from the Sky Hub SR101 as the guide links to a site which will give the details for the Sagem 2504N. This piece is different.

      For getting the log in details from the Sky Hub, see this thread:

      How is the performance with your TP-LINK WR1043ND router?
      Do you recommend it?
