Sky Hub DNS Servers


[link to this post]
 
I'm finally up and running 70Mbit/16Mbit on my Fibre Unlimited Pro.

My Sky Hub is currently using the following DNS: 90.207.238.97, 90.207.238.99

I'd like to know if there's any way through different firmware or advanced options to add my own custom, tertiary DNS.

Also, as far as using my own router, is that doable?

Not with the Sky Hub, no.

With some routers, yes. Have a look at the Skyuser forum.

I suppose I could just put my router on the Sky Hub DMZ, but I want to know the username/password for the PPPoE so that I can just skip the Sky Hub. Not possible (officially), I'm assuming.

Not possible, as Sky don't use PPPoE on fibre.

I think you'll need to sniff the username/password from the Hub first. Then you need a router with a customisable DHCP on the WAN side that can send the username/password in the DHCP packet. Sky call this "MER".

There are a few routers that support DHCP option 61 around. I use a Billion BiPAC 8200N VDSL2 router although it has a few problems with ECI hardware.

Draytek UK support have a beta firmware for some their routers. 2820 and 2830 spring to mind.
