#SkyBB Broadband on #OpenWRT based Router

I prefer to use my own hardware as I use extended features... The sticky point is that Sky uses the MER authentication system. This turns out to be a pain, but its not that difficult once you have extracted your UserID from your existing router.
It will look something like 010203040506@skydsl|deadbeef
Convert it to HEX 30313032303330343035303640736B7964736C7C6465616462656566 and then you are ready to configure OpenWRT.

Under the WAN interface, set the Hostname to SkyBB; Under Advanced, set the ClientID to the HEX string you made earlier.

Save and Apply - Your OpenWRT router should work and authenticate with SkyBroadband. (I am using a BT openreach Fibre modem attached to the WAN port of a Linksys router)

Fake USB->Ethernet Davicom devices on Ebay
For my latest project I wanted some cheap USB->Ethernet adapters for my RaspberryPi - Ebay was the source of the usual inexpensive throw away stuff so I bought 4 of the adapters. At £3 each, its not going to break the bank.

On arrival, they seemed to look okay until I plugged 2 of them to the same machine.. They both had the same MAC address! Further digging showed they aren't even USB2.0.  I opened one up to see what the main chip was, and the numbers have been filed off.

There are many on Ebay, but they all look the same! ... KEEP AWAY from them.

If the MAC address causes an issue, many adapters allow software to change the address.

The worst experience I have ever had. The after-surgery care and testing is abysmal. The Doctor does not return phone calls or even speak to the public on the phone - and when the surgery co-ordinator is on leave,nothing in the Admin department gets done. This includes mailing test results.
