Unfortunately this requires the router to have a special option called "DHCP client option 61" and the R1 doesn't have this option.

Not sure if DumaOS will have the option on the R1 but as is you would need to use the original sky router with the R1

There is a way you can do this as i had mine setup this way when i was with sky fibre,plug in the hg612 then from LAN port 1 on the modem run a ethernet to the bottom ethernet port on the sr102 (sky hub) this basically disables the modem within the sky hub,you can then run the r1 after the sky hub bit messy but it works

Its abit trash that  you cant use your own modem router combination with them. It was the only reason why I ended up choosing BT over sky..

you can use your own modem/router but sky will not give you your login details. You have to use wireshark in order to obtain them. There are video's on youtube and forums on how to do this, but I refuse to use any ISP that restricts people in such a way!

I done that but it still will not work unless the router you are using has MER. Shame as I am in desperate need to get rid of the sky modem/router!
