      Exclamation Sky Router will not reset

      Changed router logon username and password for a friend after installing router. My friend has since forgotten both , and cannot get onto the router to set up his wii. Now I cannot get the router to reset. I have tried, but it wont go back to the default admin & sky. Any help would be appreciated.

      Just a thought -- the power needs to be on when you press the reset. Keep it depressed for 10 secs at least.

      If this doesn't work see the Netgear company's forums and look for any posting by jmizoguchi who includes link to smarter ways to reset.

      I had exactly that problem with several netgear devices. It was utterly impossible to reset them. In the end a couple of them wound up in the bin; a case of "sod it".
