      You can flash the Sagem to standard firmware, see this - http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/askin...2504-a.html#22

      I don't think the Sky Dlink has been fully hacked.

      I did butcher together some firmware for the sky Dlink last year, but to date I haven't had the time to go back and finish it.

      You don't need any special firmware to do that.

      Disable the WiFi and follow the instructions in this thread: http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/askin...-together.html
