    Arguably the best router on the planet in the £100 range, only really bettered by the latest version from Asus the new AC68 at £180

    These sell fast on here as nobody sells theirs :)

    Brand new in the box

    you can use Sky fibre on this dead easily by installing the Merlin FW, incredible reviews across the board, all other ISP use standard authorisation so you can use the Merlin FW or the official Asus one

    Price and currency: £90
    Delivery: Delivery cost is Included
    Payment method: Paypal or BT
    Location: Kings Lynn

    Had it about 2 days mate

    yes you can, you need to extract your username from your sky hub, presuming you have the Sr101 router? you use wireshack, it is dead easy

    if you have a different sky router you use a script on a website, just google you router and 'how to get user name and password'

    then you install the merlin FW, add you username and password, though don't sell your sky router as if someone else use it to log into sky servers your router will not

    How long you got :)

    just a few simple ones

    Wireless Signal is better
    Gigabit ports
    5GHZ channel
    QOS (allows you to prioritize traffic)
    DLNA server
    Guest Networks
    VPN Server

    to name a few :)

    Sorry,

    its a lot better

    Wireless Signal is better (self explanatory, it creates a bigger circle for wireless coverage)

    Gigabit ports (move data, films et al, around your network a lot faster)

    5GHZ channel (hugely important, if you have a lot of neighbours, it is a different frequency to connect to that suffers less interruption which equals faster speed)

    QOS (allows you to prioritize traffic) (if you stream movies etc, this allows you to say to the router, I want people using the internet to suffer no slowdown or vice versa)

    DLNA server (you can plug a USB etc into the USB port and use the router to stream movies, pic, music etc around your house)

    Guest Networks (give people who don't live with you access to your internet as a guest)

    VPN Server (log in from outside your house)

    I can do mate, but obviously it means I have to open it?

    if you wish for me to do that I will take pictures first and email them to you so you can see the sealed unit, it is super easy to do, but I am more than happy to do it....

    it is your choice

    ok mate we have a deal :) will take some pics and PM you....

    can I just ask as I want to make sure you are happy, are you ok to get the User name and password from your sky box?

    I would hate for you to get this and struggle to get your User name and password, do you want to that and just confirm you got it ok?

    also please understand you will not be able to sell your sky router as if you do the person who uses it to log on to sky will knock your connection off, you will need it in case your BB goes down as sky wont help you on a 3rd party router
