Re: Sky Fibre Broadband DSL Settings for third party router

Just looking through the changelog for the firmware here and it looks like they removed the user/pass in the 2018/04/11 version so looks like it should have the standard Sky login with correct syntax built in.........as long as your firmware is up to date.

- Simplify settings for UK Sky in QIS. Removed username / password.

QIS = Quick Internet Setup

 

I would still leave the Sky modem/router plugged in though at least until your line has retrained back to normal.

Re: Sky Fibre Broadband DSL Settings for third party router

 If all you want to do is avoid double NATing on the Sky Q hub / ASUS router assign a DMZ in the Sky box to you ASUS LAN. FWIW I have a 68U as well. It is not a good modem and would avoid that setup. I use Sky Q DMZ -> Pfsense router/firewall and use the 68U as access point only. If you want to bin the Sky Q I would go for a dedicated modem that would bridge for you.

Re: Sky Fibre Broadband DSL Settings for third party router

So in the end I contacted Sky and they sent an open reach engineer round to check and reset the line. I would have to agree with everyone saying that the Asus modem isn't good but the WIFI capabilities are by far better than Sky's. Since I did buy the DSL version as opposed to the R version I'm going to stick with using its modem and routing functions. The line reset has made the line a lot more stable, I'm getting hardly any CRC errors with roughly 72mbit/s download speed. I'm really happy that Sky does allow third party modems as I was worried that I just wasted £20.

 

Thank you all for your help.
