      Default user logon with sagem router

      Hi...first post here although i've been reading a lot of stuff over the last few weeks. However after a recent discovery, I felt a need to register and ask for some help.

      I signed up to sky BB about a month or so back and have been really happy with everything, however a friend came over and wanted to change some router settings. I told him not to but he went ahead and did it anyway, without knowing my password...which I changed as soon as I received the router.

      Anyway...turns out he just logged onto the router with...

      username: user
      password: user

      which sky didn't even inform me existed as a logon. Being made aware of it I went ahead to change the password but it won't let me, I get the following error message

      "sysOldPasswd is different from sysPassword, try it again "

      any idea how to change this, I know it's not a serious problem as my wifi is encrypted so someone has to be allowed access the network before they can alter router settings...but it kinda pee's me off that sky were too lazy or stupid to let me know about it.

      The normal login password and user name is
      (user name) admin
      (password) sky
      but sometimes the above login seems to allow access. It's nothing to do with Sky and a lot to do with Sagem and how it wrote the firmware.

      Re: Default user logon with sagem router

      Thanks for the quick reply.

      However, surely sky have a responsibility to inform the end user of this security problem as they dictate which router we have to use.

      The issue for me isn't so much that someone can access my router on these settings...the main problems are that

      1 - I can't change the password from user

      2 - I wasn't informed, it's pretty clear to me that this is sky's responsibility.
