      Question Whats the password for connection

      I received my router and activation date (today .. not holding my breath though !), and noticed that in all the correspondance i have received from sky they have only given me a user name, and no password. I notice on the router there are no settings for user name or password, so how do i actually connect to the service when the line finally gets activated ?

      You have no need for a username or password in the router once you get connoted just push the Sky button thats at the bottom of the Router Status page and that is mean to tell the Sky system that you have connoted.

      You will need the username and password to access http://www.skybroadband.com do you have an account on sky.com mysky if so that the password you need to use.

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      The username / password is hardcoded into the routers firmware which is why you have to use the sky netgear router.
      You should have had a username and password though as it's needed to login to your email.
