    The router is behaving a little better this morning and, so far, everything has been given a unique IP address. Line speed dropped off a little this morning - 3 Mb, but still 4 times faster than it was with BT.

    The "little card" contains the password for the wireless connection - which is also printed on the bottom of the router and has been changed by me anyway!

    It's the credentials for the router to connect to Broadband that are hidden. As far as I can gather, it's mac address @skydsl.com, but the password is the problem. With BT, the router needed firstname.lastname @btbroadband.com with a pasword of BT (though an enginerr once told me that the password was irrelevant and you could have put iamamassmurderer and it would have accepted it!)

    If you're still having trouble drop me a PM with the problems you're having and I can have my mate (who works in tech support @ Sky) advise or contact you if he can.

    Edit: I think I understand what you're after. You want the connection details to connect to SkyBB which are usually provided in a letter or email by most other ISPs. I've sent him a text to ask, even if you don't need them anymore, would be good to know.

    The details are hidden within the router and there's not a known way to get to them. Sky know the details but will not provide them, even on request. It's part of the contract you sign. It's to prevent you using your own router.
