Success connecting any standard router to Sky through a VDSL modem I guess. I can certainly get my linux router to issue a DHCP request with specifc options. Can get it to mimic the MAC address of the Sky hub too.
Yes, if you're familiar with TCP/IP sniffing, then people have used (and documented) using Wireshark to extract the userid and password pair from the DHCP request packet on a SR101/SR102 router. Once captured you just need to configure your dhcpcd to send these in the request. MAC address of the router is ignored.
(dragon2611 on that forum sometimes also posts on tbb, another ex BE user like myself)
Looks like I'll need to get myself a VDSL modem from somewhere.
I'd grab one of these if I was you
