      is there a way of getting username and password without the backup

      i just upgraded the firmware of sky's netgear router to netgear's official firmware 1.02.14

      after the update, i realized that i didnt make the bakup of sky's firmware and the router couldnt connect because i held the reboot button for more than 20 seconds which erased every setting from the router.

      so is there a way of getting the isp's username and password without the bakup

      thnx in advance

      A backup wouldn't help you. If you need the Sky username/password, use James67's tool.

      Just curious, why did you change firmware?

      Re: is there a way of getting username and password without the backup

      i upgraded just to see whats the difference between sky,s firmware and netgear's firmware

      i have read jame's post but it just says how to get the login username and password, i m on about the network username and password which is something like xxxxxxx@skydsl.com something like that and the password as well

      If you return the router to the official firmware, or better still James's community update you wont need to know the username and password.

      By the way how are you posting on here if you can't connect with your router?

      Not as far as I know, you would need to return the FW back to the Netgear one.

      No but you could get your ADSL Credentials from James's extras in the community update and then reflash the netgear firmware back.
