How do i configure my Belkin router to work with Sky broadband?

I have just signed up to Sky broadband and my line will be active in a couple of days. I don't wish to use the Sky router as I have a brand new Belkin wireless network. Anyone know how I can make the Belkin work with Sky?
Sky have conceded I can use other routers with their service, but then oddly add that they canot tell me what the settings are?!

    Just bought a Belkin N wireless router and am having problems setting it up with Sky. First off their list of ISPs on the installation process does not include Sky. Not sure whether to use BT or Generic but so far neither one works. The install procedure does allow some manual input of settings but I'm at a loss as what it is looking for. I'm a little inexperienced too which no doubt is making the problem worse.

Follow the below steps to setup sky broadband network:

  1. Find your master phone socket.
  2. If it's a standard phone socket, disconnect everything connected to it and move to step 4.
  3. If it's pre-filtered, disconnect anything connected to the broadband port and move to step 6.
  4. Plug one of the microfilters that came with your Sky Hub pack into your master socket.
  5. Plug one finish your gray DSL cable into the microfilter's Sky Hub port. Then move to step 7.
  6. Plug one finish your gray DSL cable into the pre-filtered master socket's DSL port. Then move to step 8.
  7. Plug your phone lead or telephone socket splitter into the microfilter's Sky Box/Phone socket.
  8. Plug the other finish of the gray DSL cable into the Broadband port at the back of your Sky Hub.
  9. Connect your power cable and switch your Hub on at the mains
  10. Once the lights have stopped blinking and are lit steady white, you're connected to the internet.

If you are unable to connect, get in touch with a technical expert by calling on Sky Contact number 0844 385 1222 or visit the website

I'm not into hacking what I cannot find on ISP's sites

From what I can gather from the Sky Broadband site reading the manual installation procedures -- the process is pretty much automatic when it comes to installing their equipment leaving no clues as to how they configure it. What is the model if the Belkin router? Options probably exist to attach your device to theirs either as a router (establishing a second network behind theirs) or an access point joining as a member of their network - meaning there would would be two wireless networks in either case in the house (as there are no indications I have found on the site that the provided the sky router can be configured in any way such as turning off wireless). At least according to the documentation the sky router's wireless is running WPA-PSK security / encryption which is good -- and the documentation for attaching non-sky wireless adapters appears to be documented here.

    Sorry just opened up another link on "equipment help" and there are some configuration possibilities for the sky supplied router -- depending in what is available the configuration may be extractable for input to your Belkin router afterall. Sometimes you do not find what you are looking for where you expect it!

If you havent already, try and reset the router using the little pinhole button on the router itself. You can also try to view the router page, at admin/sky and look at the connection to see what could be causing it. If this still does not help, this webpage might:

Unless your computer also has an active & configured wireless adapter, then disconnecting the Ethernet cable between the computer and the router _will_ cause a loss of Internet connectivity.

Belkin router is not compatible with sky broadband

Access the router's built-in web-interface,
and check that the ID/password that you configured into the router are the values that your Internet Service Provider (SKY) gave you.

No wireless connection :(

If you have your broadband configuration info written down, you could try resetting your router to the factory default settings and then re-configure it.

For most broadband connections, the default settings will work OK, but you should configure your router with a secure administrator password and wireless key.

The user manual for the router as well as configuration software can be found here:

Connection problems

Sound like the least road of Pain is to Return it and write down the new code you need to know.

There may be other solutions, but is support is not helping, get another brand. It should not be that hard.
I might suggest Linksys / Cisco

I cant get my belkin router to work with sky broadband

You may need to ask Sky Broadband with the type of connection you may need to set up to the router. It could be a dynamic IP or static IP. Whatever settings your ISP requires, then it must be configured in your router.

Hope this helps!
