      Extracting user and password from a SR102 without a Windows PC?

      Hi all

      First post for me, hope the title is self explanatory.

      Only have Android tablets and phones, and one IPhone in use in house.

      Plus Xbox360 and PS3...

      How can I extract user/password from SR102 due to go live tomorrow?

      If possible?

      Am worried regarding comments on poor WiFi performance due to 4 devices on WiFi, consoles are wired.

      Also what recommendations regarding new router for (much) better WiFi performance.

      Thanks in advance.

      Mark C

      Firstly the WiFi isn't that bad. Sure it could be better, but for most of what you have listed there, a 144mbps WiFi connection is more than adequate.

      Signal strength is on par with most routers, although some newer ones are a little better.

      Lastly I note that you already have Sky Broadband. Well good news...

      Just go ahead an connect up your new SR102 now. Ignore the dire warning on the packaging to not connect it up. This would be more applicable to someone with a non-Sky broadband connection. Many other have previously done this without any repercussions.

      See how the router gets on, then let us know if you still need to get a better router.

      In the mean time, see if you can borrow a laptop with Wireshark installed from a friend or relative.

      Essentially you have 3 options for using your own router:


      1. get a new router with a built-in VDSL Modem
      2. purchase a BTO Modem and use a router without a Modem (i.e. a Cable router) with a suitable firmware
      3. Set up your own router with the SR102 sending all the traffic to it via the DMZ Server setting - Using the DLink DIR613.


      Another option would be to purchase a WiFi extender, disable the Sky router's WiFi and use the Extender to connect with.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      Wireshark also runs on a Mac computer (in case you can't borrow a Windows laptop but can borrow a Mac!)
