Hey all. I posted the below also on the OpenWrt forum to see if anyone there could also help. Posting it here too! Any help would be great as I’m stuck!
I have FTTC with Now Broadband (Sky) in the UK, the box is shocking in regards to range, so I would like to try and get my GL.iNet router to work if possible? Has anyone managed to do this?
I have a GL.iNet travel router which I am trying to set up GL-SFT1200 / Opal - GL.iNet
I’m hoping that if I can find a way to make this work then I can go out and by there now home wifi 6 box that I also like the look of.
Flint 2 (GL-MT6000) | High-Performance VPN Router - GL.iNet
I would like to ideally stick with this brand of router as from a cost to features perspective they are really good, like being able to use my VPN client wire guard on it mostly and Ad guard home plug in.
I connected a white BT open reach modem to the below and everything lit up correctly but no internet as could not connect to the sky infrastructure (probably as no option 60/61?)
I understand the complications that come with getting Sky to work on other routers as it’s my understanding they use DHCP option 60/61?
I really hope someone can help me as I am running out of places to look online.
I have done a search on here and also on the GL.iNet forums and found pieces of information but I am struggling!
These routers use OpenWrt so hoping someone here can help me out? If I can’t do it then I may have to look at another provider who does not use this stupid connection method!
Many Thanks in advance!
