      Question Connecting ASUS RT-N66U to SKY hub?

      I'm a bit of a networking noob, I can get by though with a little guidance.

      I'm currently using a service that requires me to block a certain DNS via my routers settings (I won't go in to too much detail as some forums won't give me the time of day if I do, all I'll say is I live in the UK and enjoy watching U.S. Netflix), of course I can't seem to do this with the standard SKY Home Hub (Black) so I've read I can connect a better router to it via ethernet cable from the new routers WAN port and in to any of the ethernet ports on the SKY Hub. I'm pretty sure I can get my hands on an ASUS RT-N66U tomorrow morning from a friend which I believe has the required WAN port, see image below:

      The blue port?

      So how do I go about this? I'm guessing I'll have to tick some boxes somewhere on the SKY Hubs page, disable the Hubs wireless and probably enter some IP and/or DNS addresses here and there.

      Anyone care to do me a quick step-by-step literally starting from unboxing the ASUS router I'm a very quick learner I promise.

      Just to be clear when setting a new static IP to the router do I do this from the LAN or WAN page? I also keep getting stuck when I try to apply the new IP on the LAN page, I get an error message stating that WAN and LAN should have different IP addresses and subnet?
