      yes, i *can* use my Airport Extreme BaseStation to replace the Sky router. ideal if you have alot of apple devices.

      pretty much any dual band router that supports DD-WRT/OPEN-WRT can be used with sky fibre

      Re: Dual Band router + Sky Fibre

      So does this actually replace the router or do i need to plug this into the router?

      either. to use the AEBS in place of the sky hub you will need to extract the username and password. the guide can be found here
