      resetting the router

      Changed my router login password the other day for extra security, but now it won't accept it so I guess I must have mistyped it (doh). Can I reset it (see profile for model) and it will still keep my user/pass?.

      Also (and totally unrelated). was round at my brothers, and noticed his line attenuation is 43, whereas the house next door (a friend of mine) is 38. Both are on the same exchange (housing built at the same time), and with sky unlimited. Seems a bit odd?.

      thx
      joe

      It will reset your login password otherwise there wouldn't be much point in doing it but provided it is a router provided by Sky it will still negotiate an internet connection.

      Sorry, yeah I meant would it also reset my sky connection user/pass. It is the sky supplied router so I guess all is good.

      cheers

      Re: resetting the router

      Anyone any ideas on the 2nd part?. The lines are underground so unfortunately I can't tell where each line goes initially. Is there anything else that affects attenuation besides line length?.
