[BCAB] Wi-fi - limit on connections

Hi,

It's quite easy to link another router to the Sky router, just put it into bridging mode.  None of the ISPs guarantee support if you change your router, but they will usually do it if you ask nicely.

All the best

Steve

I believe it is against their Ts and Cs, so you won't get any support if you have a problem and you're not using their equipment.  Also, they won't give you the routers user name and password that you might need for your own router.  I think that someone on here has a way of linking a router to the Sky router that might work.  Was it Mo?

Cheers

Barry

I was told, some time ago, that Sky won't let you use any router but their own.
Can anyone confirm that?
