I've read through the posts on using a 3rd party router on NowTV broadband and its seems some routers are easy to setup, but the Fritzbox routers never get a mention. I've tried following the steps listed in the posts here and I cannot get it to connect.
The model I have is a 7530. Has anyone managed to get a Fritzbox router working on NowTV broadband? If so, how did you manage it?
I’ve heard of options that the provider may need to configure at their end to make things work, but I’ve never heard of a router with options to make things work that the user can’t configure, only the provider can. Still, you live and learn…..

AS im sure you are now aware, both Now and Sky use a slightly different log in/system to other ISPs known as MER/Option 61 ( or something like that) which means that not all modem/routers/access points ( commonly referred to as routers) will work on Sky/Now services, and then to complicate it some more some manufacturers models will work, while others wont.
A quick search seems to show that Fritzbox routers fall into the do not work category :
