Can you use a different router with Sky
Re: Can i use my own router? You would need a router that’s compatible with Sky’s MER/Option 61 comms protocols. Do be aware that Sky won’t provide support whilst you’re using a third party router, so hang on to the Sky router so that you can swap back to it, if necessary.
Can I use a different router with TalkTalk
Most providers, including BT, TalkTalk, and Plusnet, allow you to use your own router, though they don’t always recommend it. You may not want the router that your provider gives you, but don’t throw it away! If you’re buying a brand new router, do your research!
Can you use any router
You can use any wireless router you want, but the modem you purchase has to be approved by your ISP to function with their network.

Can you upgrade Sky router
Automatic software updates for Sky routers. From time to time Sky may need to update the software in the Sky Hub or router. This will be an automated process and you don’t need to do anything. However, during the upgrade the Sky Hub or router must not be switched off.
Are Sky routers dual band
Admittedly this is just a one-off saving, but it is something we’d like to see from all ISP-supplied fibre broadband routers going forward. Quite astonishingly the Hub 2 remains a single band 802.11n 2.4GHz router while virtually all rivals have moved onto faster dual band 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11n routers.

Is it better to have a separate modem and router

Do I need both a modem and a router
Note: A Wifi point is a router. To use a Wifi point, you will need to connect it to a modem with an Ethernet cable. This can be a standalone modem or a modem+router combination provided by your ISP. Keep in mind, some apartment buildings and dorms don’t require modems for broadband connections.
