Sky Router


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

Does anyone know if Sky are planning to bring out a new A/C router with 5gh options?

Thanks in advance.

there is a sr103 in the works but no idea of the specs sorry.

For what its worth you can use your own router as long as it supports the login method and you are able to spend the time grabbing the auth info from the sr102 they send out.

Thank you Chrysalis.

Going live with sky on the 20th July, so likely to get the sr102 then?

How do you get the details you mention so I can use another router, plus, isn't that against Sky's term and conditions?

Once again, I thank you.

I'll give it a go, as long as Sky don't shout or disconnect me?

Wireshark is a bit over the top, just use the calculator http://www.ph-mb.com/products/sky-calc and choose the Sagem.

It used to be against their terms to use a different router, but after they took over us O2 people that is no more as many of them use their old Thomson routers. The T&C were updated to allow this. I am currently using a TPLink router.

they wont disconnect you, but if you ask for support they may refuse to help unless you reconnect the sr102.

Currently I am using my ac68 just fine.

SO is it just standard PPPoE now then or do you still have to have the different authentication methods and jump through hoops like before?
