    (Trying to) Hack the Sagem

    This is a discussion on (Trying to) Hack the Sagem within the Sky Router forums, part of the Sky Broadband help category; I hope it can be hacked. Don't get me wrong it seems ok just now, but my concern is it ...

      Re: (Trying to) Hack the Sagem

      I hope it can be hacked. Don't get me wrong it seems ok just now, but my concern is it will pack in one day, I will require a new router but this will take X days via snail mail and since I don't have the details I can't access with another router!

      Also I got to know my Netgear router, all set up how I wanted etc after several negative experiences with other routers. Now I'm back in the unknown and very worried at how reliable this one will be.

      I once owned a Sagem ADSL modem....wow was that bad, I hope they have improved!

      Re: (Trying to) Hack the Sagem

      I cannot fault the new Sagem Router, although I am at the moment on my old V1 router. I don't like using just one make when I have 3 different routers to choose from

      Both the new Sagem and Netgear ones have been 100% solid in our testing of them.

      I hope your right and they continue to be reliable!

      I will give my parents the Netgear in the meantime. Drag them into this century!

      Re: (Trying to) Hack the Sagem

      I have to echo what NewsreadeR says, We have had the Sagem V2 for a while also and it is amazing. Having used the Netgear V1 for 12 Months and the Sagem V2 for a couple of months, The end-user experience of the V2 has been far more desirable then that of the V1 over a 12 Month Period.

      Re: (Trying to) Hack the Sagem

      Any advance on hacking the Sagem?

      This is my first post so go easy. My story goes as follows:

      1. Activation date 27/12/07, come back from the in-laws and all's fine.
      2. Try to work from home on the 31st and can't VPN into work (worked fine on Pipex with my D-Link router).
      3. Have seen other people with the same problem.
      4. Phone Sky, careful not to say the phrase "VPN into work", because of the home/work T&Cs.
      5. Say "can't use VPN" and they go "What's a VPN".
      6. He does all the standard troubleshooting and after about 45 minutes remind him I've got an old router sitting here that could VPN. So he gives me the username and password.
      7. However, these did not work. The password he gave me was not a hex string - have they changed these with the V2 routers?? I guess nobody knows yet 'cos noone's hacked it yet.
      8. Phone again, the Irish guy I eventually got through to said he'd send me a V1 white Netgear, so was happy thinking I could get the U&P from that, but received another Sagem!!
      9. So am back to hacking the Sagem.

      My options at the moment are:

      1. Get Sagem to deal with work VPN (preferably, 'cos it's doing everything else it should do).
      2. Work out how they get the password from the mac address (unlikely, 'cos they're likely to have a private key).
      3. Hack the Sagem to get username and password.

      I now have a spare router to do with what I please but the only problem is I have no clue where to start. Where have we got to with hacking the Sagem?

      I think the answer to this is no where unfortunately! I can't find any info about hacking this model.

      on a side note, i hope the person who gave you the (albeit) wrong username/password wasn't being listened too as they'll prob be out of a job soon...

      How many characters long was the password?

      PS, I could do with the Sagem (as I only have the netgear) in order to do some tutorials based on the sagem. But note this is not a plee lol, if you feel you would like to donate the spage sagem to us then god bless lol.

      Re: (Trying to) Hack the Sagem

      The password was 11 chars long, with the first two letters followed by 9 numbers. The two letters were not hex.

      This doesn't follow the pattern of the passwords I am used to seeing. Whether he knew what he was doing or not he said the password was based on the serial number of the router.

      What happens if you translate the Serial Number into hex? There's something that tells me that it really will be that simple...

      PS. I'm sure I can find something to do with the spare router...
