Using a sky wireless router with talk talk

Hi all,

I'm pretty new to this, so please bear with me!

I've recently change ISP's from Sky to TalkTalk. I'm wanting to us the sky netgear wireless router with TalkTalk, but not sure where to start.

Is it as simple as plugging it in and using the same WEP key as before? Or do i need to reset the router and apply the talktalk settings?

Any helpful advice would be much appreciated!

hi pc_noidea....
afraid it cant be done, sky have locked the details of their connection into the firmware so using it for another isp is not possible...while it is possible to
flash the firmware ,this more often than not renders the router useless...best idea is to get in touch with talktalk and tell them you want a wireless router (tho if they already gave you a modem they will want to charge for it ).Dave

Yes you'd have to flash the original Netgear firmware back onto the router. After that it stops been a Sky router and will connect to other ISP's. Take a look at the Netgear site under the model number and download the latest firmware. Upgrading isn't difficult just follow the instructions.
