Connecting to NOWTV

Post by iadkin » Mon Apr 20, 2020 7:07 pm

I’m trying to connect to NOWTV using my 8800nl and have followed the Sky option 61 route in the quick set up guide including the generic login I’d and password with no joy. I’ve read that Sky and NOWTV use the broadband MAC address and I have that from the NOWTV router but I’m not sure how to change it on the 8800. Any advice would be great?

Try the following

1. Reset the device back to factory default settings
2. Click on 'Configuration >> WAN >> WAN Service'
3. Click on the 'Edit' button for the 'PTM >> PPPoE' interface
4. Follow the attached screen shot

You don't have to worry about MAC spoofing as Sky don't use this method anymore.
