      Question Will any Sky router work on Sky Broadband?

      The fools at sky have migrated my ADSL connection from BE before sending out a Sky Router.....

      They don't support non sky kit.....up to 5 days for the router to be sent to me....

      I've opted to buy a second hand Sagem router from ebay for a 10.

      Will this just connect up when I plug it in, as I understand it the username and pwd are router linked and not customer linked?

      Thanks

      So long as it's not suspended, and the logins aren't in use, then yes

      Yeah i saw that i can get it from a router which i am in possession of, but my question was really about could I buy router login details from someone else as I dont have a router.

      I would advise against purchasing the log in details alone.

      Since they are unique to the router, they could quite easily sell the router to someone else, who could then use it. You wold then be 'stuffed'.

      If you know someone who happens to has a spare Sky router (i.e. an ex-Sky customer), then best thing would be to borrow their router. You could extract the details yourself, but remember that once the router goes, don't use those details.
