      New Sky Booster Specifications?

      Does anyone know the specification for the device below? I have switched to Sky Ultrafast 1 at 27 inclusive of unlimited phone calls anytime (FYI if you want to haggle with Sky) although the provided SKY HUB 4 (if that is what is called) is good, however I want to revert back to my PFsense setup + G.Fast Openreach modem:

      Is this 802.11AC capable? It is being delivered today, if it isnt, I am going to ebay it.

      Coincidently, for anyone who is interested in completely replacing their Sky G.fast router (Sky Hub 4) this is on ebay which is both a router and a G.fast modem:

      Re: New Sky Booster Specifications?

      This booster is pain in the butt. it does have a VERY BASIC interface.

      My intention was to use it as a wireless access point without having the SKy SR204 switched on. I have come to conclusion that it is impossible. The reason being that it does not do any security authentication, as it relies on the main Sky router. the moment I switch of the main Sky router, the booster does advertise both 2.4 and 5 Ghz Wireless networks that I have however it does not allow me to connect to it, as the password is not being authenticated.

      The question is, can a pfSense router enable one of its LAN interfaces to do WPA2 authentication? if yes then I can only assume that this kit is likely to serve the purpose.
