    D-Link User/Pass

      Thumbs down D-Link User/Pass

      I've had enough of the D-Link DSL 2640S and honestly, it's the worst modem I've ever had. After monitoring it for 2 days (That's all it took) the noise margin kept dropping, I'm also getting hacked (Zone alarm is blocking the attacks) and the modem keeps randomly rstarting itself so, screwing the Sky's Terms of Service, can I retrieve my Username and Password out of the thing and put it into my Zoom ADSL X5 that CAN protect me?

      Also, I HAVE to have my PC on to use Xbox Live because ZoneAlarm hides the IP which nearly prevents the modem from getting intrusion reports.

      You should be able to get the username and password and use it in your Zoom ADSL X5.

      The SPI in the router should prevent agains DOS attacks.

      The only issue with SPI is that it can cause packet loss and affect online gaming

      The QOS packet scheduler would also be rather handy for prioritising gaming traffic.

      Could you post your Router Stats?

      It might not be the router that is causing the intermittent connection.

      You will get all the information you require in this section-
      Extracting Sky Router passwords
      You may be out of luck though if your firmware on the Dlink has been updated.

      Edit: I now remember you are on Connect, another router will not help you with that.

      Re: D-Link User/Pass

      Is your current setup:

      Master socket > microfilter > short ADSL cable > router ?

      Do you have a test socket?

      You look like your on Connect.

      What is your speed like between 4-11pm?

      Re: D-Link User/Pass

      That's the only socket in the house. I was with BT 1 month earlier and was with for 3 months with no problems. as soon as I plugged this Sky modem in, it has been 1 month of non-stop problems and now my privacy is at risk.

      Speed at 4-11PM ranges from 3.4-4.3Mbps

      Current setup

      Master socket > Filter > DSL cable > Modem

      If i am right and you're are on connect.

      The most likely reason for the issue is that BT incorrectly provisioned you on Fastpath.

      If the firmware has been updated, then it is still possible after using the recovery utility supplied with the router to downgrade the firmware first.

      Unfortunately, my d-link seems to be stuck on the original sky_1.11 firmware, so I've been bidding on used ones on ebay, on the off chance that I might crack it again.

      The issue is if you are on Connect, then changing the router will be the least of your problems.

      I Suggest you check Sam Knows to see if Sky has LLU in your exchange.
