skys routers bridging


[link to this post]
 
Hi my contract with virgin is finally up so thinking of switching to sky as its 1/3 of the price and i should get around 12-13 meg so ill be happy. The thing is i no sky dont allow you to use your own router i also no of the ways to get user names out of them but apparently the new routers dont allow this. So my question is do sky routers support bridge mode because i was thinking i could use my current wireless N cable router and just use the sky bit as a modem thanks for any replys.

The new D-Links have also been hacked.

I'd just use my own router as there has never been anyone kicked off for not using a sky router to my knowledge.

There was 1 post on skyuser.co.uk about one person getting kicked off but i don't know if its true


The sky routers are useless

I can confirm the new Sky Dlink has indeed been hacked and a small program can be used to extract your username and password, which work just fine with other routers smile

right thanks for the info guys main reason i wounded if i could just use my current router in bridge was just to save buying a new one i only bought the one i have a few month ago for like £50 but if its easy enough to extract i suppose might as well look at getting another one it will be nice to have it all in one box at least lol thanks again

another quick question what are the pings like with sky as i play wow and FEAR online and some times host my own room on FEAR so low pings would be nice im not that into ADSL so i dont no much about how to get best performance out of it for gaming we've always had cable broadband

I'm on the gaming profile with max delays set to 8ms and my ping is 35-38ms

This is around 5-10ms higher than i got on TalkTalk LLU

I have to say Sky's pings are solid day and night, also speeds are too.

Been with them now few months and always got the full speed from my line, and never any rise in pings even at peak times.
