When you get router, you can set a range of IP addresses for it to assign to computers. The default is 192.168.1.0-255, but there are others, such as 10.0.0.0-255 and 172.16.0.0-255. All you have to do is make it use one of these other IP ranges and then it will work.

Another currently unused IP range is the "research designated range" 240.0.0.0 to 254.255.255.254. I have used this as the IP range for my router a few times, due to it being so large.

I was able to use a TP Link router by using Wireshark to redeem the particular details. I sniffed the network data and then used that username and password within the TP link and it connected without any issues. The reason I did this was that the new sky hub does not support gigabit ports and I am still a wired man! Ensure you pick up a modem that has the ADSL2+ capability although for fibre I assume there are some differences.
