You don't do anything. It should just work. Does the sky box have an ip address from the Bright Box ??
Found in the settings menu.

The EE Brightbox seems badly borked. It doesn't handle VOIP at all well - it's so bad it's unusable. I think you might be better off with a different router.

I can confirm it should just work. Have you changed your Sky box?

To see if you can get it working at all, you can go to DHCP and reserve the sky box an IP. Then go to Firewall > DMZ and enter that IP as a client.
