Sky Hub SR101 Modification Fix

Sky Hub sr101
Well in this video we take a look at the new Sky Hub. This has to be worst wireless router given out by the top 6 broadband providers in the UK today. Not only is it limited by poor antenna design it is  severely crippled by the built in power supply and its lack of shielding. I have no idea how this router made it through to production and to top it off if you are an existing customer they will charge you £59.99 for something that disconnects more times than it stays connected.

    Does anyone know if theres a way to use this and change settings (subnet etc) without a broadband connection as it having a built in PSU is handy for onsite testing

    But if I access the routers web page it just tells me there is no broadband connection and to contact sky with no apparent way to get into the settings

    After a few false starts in obtaining the necessary parts I have made this modification fix. I now have a more stable stronger WiFi signal :)

    This is an excellent guide, well constructed and very clear. From a personal point of view I'd like to get a little more info on where the parts were obtained. I'd loved to do this mod but I'm struggling to find approriate dipole aerials connectors. Other than that, very good.
