[access-uk] Re: Sky router security settings

Sorry Dave, not sure exactly where it is. I think it's a little pin hole on the rear of the unit.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the info, it's very helpful, only one question,, how would I
completely reset the router? is there a tiny button to depress or
something?

Thanks again.

Cheers

Dave, I'll answer your questions as you've asked them.


Am I right in thinking, they are accessed using html, and what is the
default password?

Yes, the Sky Netgear router can be interrogated via a web interface.
With the router connected in the normal way, you can access it by
putting in the routers IP address which should be 192.168.0.1  Put this
in the address line of Internet Explorer, remember though, don't put in
any prefix, just the numbers.  You'll then be asked to enter the
username and password.  Unless you have changed any of these then the
defaults are:

Username:  admin
Password:  sky


I cannot remember, whether or not I changed the password, and if I did

and have forgotten it, how can I change whatever it is?

The problem lies if you have changed your password and can't remember
it.
As far as I am aware, there is no way to get in without it.  You would
then have to completely reset the router and start again with all the
default settings.>


Once you get into the web configuration, you want to go to wireless
settings.  This is a link somewhere near the top of the page.  You can
then check and amend your security settings.  I think by default, sky
set up a 64 bit encryption system.  I personally changed this to a 128
bit WEP key.  One thing to remember if you do this, copy down the key
when it is generated as you can not re see this later and, of course,
you'll need it for any device requiring access.
