Use own Router with NR801 as Modem?

Hi

Just joined NowTv. I have my own router (a Linksys one) and it is not a modem router combo. So is there a way I can use the NowTv's NR801 as a modem only? 

Thanks.

@YamiPrem you have probably figured it out for yourself. however I know it was an option with Sky routers so I would presume it would be with Now routers.

I use a mesh WiFI from BT with the Now router doing the WAN

 

Turn DHCP off on your own router and use it as a WiFi router only

 

The Now/Sky system using MER is a bit dark-ages, but its their way of locking 

 

Switch to a better ISP when your contract is up.

Re: Router password reset/s

Dear Steve412, 

I hope you are doing well.  Please can you advise about achieving a secure password reset on a NowTV hub?  When i try to log in, an insecure connection shows up - so trying to change a password seems a bit pointless. 😊

 

Thanks for helping
