      Unhappy Replacing Sky Hub 3.0 (ER115) with TP Link Archer VR900

      Hey,

      I'm trying to replace my Sky Hun 3.0 (ER115) with the TP Link Archer VR900 but it's not able to connect to my ADSL connection.

      I've tried with the O2 install credentials and with the @skydsl credentials but neither of them allow the router to connect. Has anyone else had experience with this or know what/how I can get it to connect?
      Note; none of my devices have a NIC so I can't run the Wireshark trick

      I believe the O2 settings will only work on an exchange which had an O2 presence. eg. They do not work on my exchange as O2 was never available as an option. I am afraid you will have to use the proper Sky settings.

      I don't know if it will work but you could try this tool which does not require Wireshark - Simple tool for extracting the username and password from YOUR router.

      You could also try the online tool using the Sagem settings - Sky BB Pasword Calculator

      Hey,

      Thanks for the reply, but by the looks of it both of those need to be plugged directly to the router which I can't currently do.

      Thanks

      The Sky BB password calculator does not. All you need to know is the LAN MAC address of the ER115, and that can be obtained from the Web interface or by running a CMD shell and running ARP -a, the mac address is then listed next to the IP address of the router. Enter that into the BB calculator, Select the Sagem as the device and you should have your username and password.
