sky router on plusnet

8
Found 21st Oct 2015
quick question i am assuming that the answer is no

just going to plusnet from sky due to the price increase

however is there a way of flashing the sky router to work with plusnet or is it hardcoded into the router to only use sky and nothing else.

Depends on the router AFAIK...

The above looks like a good place to start.
Why would you want to use the crappy Sky router?? It's the worse in it's class...
If it doesn't work with Plusnet, and I'm assuming you're ending/have ended the contract with Sky request that they remove their lock on your router/or provide the firmware fille to remove their firmware off of your product. You have met and fulfilled your contractual duties, so refusing this is a hindrance to your right to enjoy peaceful possession of your property. There exists a couple of options you are evaluating with your lawyer, both actionable in Tort: trespass, or conversion (by placing a lien on your property, they are interfering with the good title that you possess, detrimental to you economically. They can be made to purchase back from you at the market rate when it was new, the goods they have 'converted'. Therefore it will be in your interests to pursue them for damages under trespass unless they 'get off your land! So to speak!

cheers for the link but it only applies to theold netgear routers - the new ones fromthe look of it are blocked to sky.

I'm on Plusnet using a BT homehub, as long as you know your log in details you can use pretty much any router, if firmware is locked, reflash it.

But if Sky supplied the router free, could they not argue that it has served its temporary purpose while the user was their customer? Sky would no longer be liable to warranty that router, so why are they obliged to restore some intrinsic value by unlocking the firmware?!

Or maybe you were trolling?? olol

Do you know which make your router is?
Get the Dark Knight Asus router which has been posted on here recently. Got this hooked up 12 months ago & not looked back over the crappy routers the ISP's supply....
