Sky fibre authentication details on own router


[link to this post]
 
Can someone with Sky fibre using their own router try out these details for DHCP authentication please? Thanks.

Am I correct in thinking that I'd need an Openreach modem for this to work?

The VDSL router I have only gives the option of PPPoE authentication. Which didn't work.

Yes, it would either have to be a third party Sky MER compatible router plugged into an (Openreach) VDSL modem, or a third party Sky MER compatible VDSL modem/router.

People with a Hub 2 will be unable to use another router unless they somehow acquire a VDSL modem.

I can't test this then frown

I have the SR102 and have no Openreach VDSL modem... Probably don't have a Sky MER compatible router either. Only a Technicolor TG789vn v3.

You can test it if you have a spare PC or can set up virtual machine, and can be bothered.

You'll need to load pfSense onto the spare PC or set it up in a virtual machine.

Not without an Openreach VDSL modem, since as far as I know the SR102 has no bridged mode.

Surprisingly it does actually work. Just tried it on my Billion 8200N.

Can we not just get another router, plug it into the Sky Hub 2 and use the new router as an access point? Ie turn off DHCP on the new router.

As in what I describe at http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/wap/configuring-wap.html

Then yes and the advantage is you can locate the access point on the end of an Ethernet cable in the perfect location to get good wireless coverage.
