After much to and fro-ing Sky have realised that they haven't sent me a new modem for my new broadband connection as I had Sky broadband 3 years ago with them, so "already have a Sky router"... So I've dug it out of the loft...
Anyway - I'm not due to be activated until Monday 31st July, but turned my old Netgear DG834GT anyway as Sky reckon it'll "just work" when I'm activated.
Looking at the statistics area in the admin control panel on the router it's not returning anything under ADSL for noise etc. Can it only do that once my ADSL line is activated Monday?
Also, no lights on the front are doing anything, like flashing red or anything which I would have thought might happen if it couldn't connect to ADSL... might be wrong though? Only light is a green one for the wifi.
Just worried as I've not actually tested my telephone line (new property - no telephone), so just assumed the line is active after BT sent me a confirmation SMS and email.... eeeek! Also, old modem, in the loft for 3 years, scared it's not working!!
