      Re: remote access

      Sadly none of the Sky routers will give any information other than what is connected at any one time, and for some period afterwards. So if you are trying to find out if someone is playing on their Xbox or doing work on their Laptop, you will not find out. It both the Xbox and Laptop happen to be connected, that is all you will see.

      Remote access is possible and you will need to enable it.

      As the WAN IP Address can easily change, I would recommend that you set up a DynDNS account as well.

      You may wish to investigate software that allows you to view their desktops remotely. This will work on many devices now, but I am not sure what would work on game consoles, if you have any or specific tablets or smart phones.

      You can set up Remote Management on the router. The newer router have an option page like this

      I think the Sagem has a similar page. If you do this, make sure you change the default password from sky to a much more secure one.
