No you can't.

That router does not support Sky's fibre service. You need a MER router, that one only does PPPoE

I'll 2nd that, the 7800n is the best router that I've used (I've used around 15), AAISP gave me one but I had to send it back when I left, If I go for sky fibre (still deciding) I'm going to buy one.
