      Re: Sky Fibre Router

      Depending on your environment and technical knowledge it may be viable to spin up an alternative DHCP server and simply disable the buggy DHCP on the Sky router for now.

      I believe you can enable a DHCP server on a Pihole - for example. Offers a wider benefit (ad-blocking) and can be deployed on a Raspberry Pi. Disclaimer - some knowledge of Raspberry Pi, Linux, and networking in general is required.

      Personally when I ran a Pihole for a bit I ran it in a virtual machine on our network. I got rid of it because it kept breaking all the links to shopping websites from Google which drove the Mrs batty. We also use a Cisco Umbrella VA now.

      Pi-hole – Network-wide protection (pi-hole.net)
