      In theory you should be able to use this with any router and ethernet device right? Or are they only connect to sky routers?
      The old one certainly can, I can't see why this one would be any different. See-

      Complete load of crap. Plug in doesnt work. Sky support as much good as a chocolate fireguard. Back in the box it goes back to sky. Should have known better.

      I'll stick to something sky cant screw up. Homeplugs and fixed lan cable.

      I had a bit of bother getting mine installed to start with, mainly my own fault. It is a bit fiddly getting the password right, especially if you have a secure password with lower and upper case with punctuation marks. In the end I changed the password to 8 x As to make it easy to enter and be sure there were no mistakes. The main problem is that the characters are hidden immediately, meaning you have no chance to check what you have entered is correct.

      Once I got it running I changed the password back to the secure one. I have had it running with the Sky STB, my TV, a PC and as a bridge to another router. Great value for money I thought.

      The old one definately works, see here - http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/askin...connector.html If you can confirm that the new one also works I may get one for future projects.
