THE ANSWER...

This is how you do it:

 

to get settings try this here

 

MAC and serial number are printed on the bottom of the NowTVHub2 on the label

Use the PPPusername and PPP password this site calculates for you

For Internet provider select SKY(MER)...

 

Took me about 5 mins. All works.

 

Edit: I have a TPLink AC1200, about 2 months old.

Re: TP Link Router with NowTv?

So would I. Been without the internet and tv for a day now and still cannot find a way to contact them without paying £6 a MINUTE!!!

Wish I had never left BT. They were more expensive but at least they worked!

Re: THE ANSWER...

I’ve followed all the instructions, using TP-Link vr600 to replace my NowTV hub2, I tried setting up using sky(mer) and sky_vdsl but when I get to the connection test part it fails. I’ve tried passwords I found on the password generator site and even tried the made up ones like people suggested e.g. 1234abcd@skydsl / 1234abcd but nothing seems to work. Not sure where I’m going wrong. If it’s letting me get the connection test, does that mean the passwords are working?! Then what else could it be?

Re: TP Link Router with NowTv?

Hi there, I have the same issue and want to use a third party router with my NowTV  hub, ideally one that can record history of sites accessed.

 

Can you advise how you went about it, what other Router did you use and how it was set up.

 

Kind regards
