      I don't get what you mean?

      Do you mean use another router?

      Or do you mean to change the username etc to logon to Sky Broadband? If so you cannot, it is set in the router.

      The new router should just connect?

      Could you clafiry exactly what you mean please?

      Will the newer one not connect at all?

      There is possibly a way around it, if you are confident enough to try?

      Re: How can i change the default Sky username and password on a 2504n?

      Have a look at this tutorial

      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-b...4n-router.html

      And just get to the bit where you backup the file, then have a look at if your username and password are in there etc?

      If they are, then I guess you could try adding your old details into that, saving it, and then reuploading to the newer Sagem possibly, it may work.

      It possibly needs to connect first then to set that bit up etc - I know in my .conf it has a bit where it says first connected or similar.

      Where did you get the 2504n from?
