Sky Broadband DreamPi Issue

Post#1 » Wed Jul 15, 2020 3:29 pm


I have been having issues getting online with DreamPi for about a month now.
Been through several tests and it came to the conclusion that Sky Broadband do not allow changing of DNS.
Therefore it won't let me change to 3rd party servers and even if the firmware was backdated it would eventually happen again.
My question is has anyone else had this problem?
My only option I feel that is gonna help is changing provider to BT perhaps?
In saying that, it will be another long process due to COVID 19 though nothing can be done about it.
Thanks for reading

You're not the first person to mention Sky being an issue. Is it worth getting in contact with their tech support to see if they can offer anything?

Currently due to Covid 19 not really. I wouldn't care changing provider if there's no easy way around it. I've sent them a mail but will see what happens. May be best to state Sky issue to buyers of DreamPi for future. Hopefully I'll get sorted
