    Hi wondered if anyone knows how to get 2 sky routers working. I've had one for ages and that worked fine. Just got another one plugged that in the lan port 2 and its got no internet. Does anyone know how to fix this.

    I'm presuming you want to just use these as switches / wireless access points with your existing router?

    If so log on to the routers web interface, if possible you want to disable the routing features so you can just use it as a switch / wireless access point.

    You will want to look for something like "DHCP Server" and disable that. It might not be possible, it depends how much sky have locked the routers down.

    Iv managed to get it working from one router to the other. But I don't want that as the other router I want to put in my bedroom. So I wanted to use lan port 2 in the openreach hub.
