      Hacked sky routers been blocked?

      Had a powercut today, resulted in my hacked dg834gt sky router being rebooted.

      Would not connect. in the connect box got 'chap authentication error', nothing had been changed. Tried my backup sky router, also hacked exact same problem, chap authentication error.

      Tried my third backup of backup that has a vanilla V1.03.87 firmware on it (just checked) it has connected up no problem.

      Anyone else encountered this?

      Have you tried the hacked router after successfully connecting with this one? Could it have been that there was a stale session due to the power cut and your line had not cleared down?

      What happens to the exchange if there is a power cut? Do they experience it too or do they have redundancy measures?
