      admin login question/s

      Hi!

      I am trying to log into my Dad's sky wireless router but the default usernme password comiation of admin sky doesn't work. Well, actually, I tried to login from my laptop wirelessly and then via ethernet with no luck. THEN I tried to login from my Dad's machine (via ethernet) and the initial netgear page with the statistics appeared in his browser (Safari on iMac) it seemed to be logged in, but if I tried going anywhere the login drop down menu came and didn't take the default values. I then logged out of this page and have been unable to get back in again.

      My Dad assures me he NEVER looked in the admin of the router ;-)))) but I have to assume he did at some point and has forgotten!

      My questions:

      If I do a factory reset, will I lose his ADSL login/passwords or are these built into the default factory settings?

      Can I access the admin area wirelessly or do I have to plug the ehternet cable in? Can I extract ADSL username/password wirelessly? ( I hope not)


      Thanks

      If you use the reset, it will put it back to the state that sky sent it (ie it includes the embedded username and password for syncing with the exchange).

      You can connect wirelessly as long as you have enabled that in the router admin page... but if you cant get into that page then.....

      If you did get to the stats page, then perhaps its a browser issue. Why not try your dads pc ethernet connection again, but use Internet Explorer.
