Hi,

\015\012Sky Broadband can be accessed from any routers, its not that you should use only their router..
\015\012They must have said that because once you buy a new router you should set the settings, that was already set by the sky broadband in the old router..Its easy, their technical support may assist you in configuring the new router..

\015\012Generaly there are three routers type A,B/G,N
\015\012N routers has the highest range, but before going to N router check whether you Network card in the laptop or system is N card, if its not, its waste buying N router..
