      Is that the dark grey router with lots of dimples like a golf ball? If so then it is the Sagem 2504, not the Sagem 2504N.

      The Sagem 2504N has a smooth silver top.

      yes, sorry it is the

      System Details
      Manufacturer Sagemcom
      Model Number F@ST2504n
      Firmware Version 5.23.1a4N
      ADSL Firmware Version A2pD030n.d23

      In the router settings, should mode be set to AUTO? Also is there anything else I should change in there?

      Nice one!

      You do not need to change any settings in order to get the best from your ADSL connection.

      I would recommend that you do a couple of things though:

      1. extract your router's log in details, just in case it dies and you want to use your own router
      2. change the SSID (WiFi broadcast name) and password

      Save the log in details to a text file and keep if safe.

      https://www.cm9.net/skypass/

      As for the WiFi name & password, Sky uses an 8 character password on all their routers. Whilst the password is different for every router, it is always 8 capital letters. It would not take too long for a 10 year old to crack your WiFi password.

      Once you have done all this, save the router's settings to a file and keep this file secure as it is stored in plain text (like most routers).
