Hi thanks for the reply
yes the vlan is still 101 but sky have/use a system on there fiber they call mer but is actually just a request to there dhcp server with option 60 and 61. 61 is the main one Client-identifier witch is basicly "firstname.lastname@example.org|password" and thats it, it is just a pppoe connection after that no password or user required but there dhcp will not allocate an ip address unless it recives dhcp request including the option 61 with skys user and password some sky users also include option 60 witch is basicly "sky sr102 v220.127.116.11" just in case they check it at a later date and see "my much better router" and that the mac is cloned from the sky hub
Most routers that sky users swap with are tomarto flash able and the script is put in the additional setting area, but asus have started putting a sky compatible profile in that takes the user and password as if it was pppoa but they send it as above, i would have loved those boxes but the wireless ac and the pbx side of the fritz box sold me i looked at cheep pbx but that and an ac router would have cost the same if mor.
i have 6months of sky fiber left but want to get rid of the double nat and slow ping of having two boxes running eg sky as gateway then fritz pluged in as cable router using one of its gigabit ports up
but looking to move to a less anal provider then.
just that sky are charging peanuts for there fiber to me and ee have stoped doing £10 off for existing customers witch would have worked out only £2 more expensive than sky charge me only talk talk(no thanks) and plusnet getting any were close on costs for 40mb unlimited service
my adsl is only 2mb so got to be fiber
