Hiya,

My SKY Sagemcom ADSL modem hasd died (only the power LED comes on) and the replacement is not die for 3-5 working dyas, so I am looking at an internet-free Weekend (yeah, chance to get outside and forget 'bout it .....erm....say what now?!)

So, I was wondering if there is a way to set up a different ADSL router. I have a Netgear and a Linksys lying around. I have heard it can be done, but Sky support wouldn't give me the details, they just said - "we don't hold these details but you could probably Google it"....Okay, did that to no avail, so here I am. Please help!!!!


Thanks!!!
