      Password to wireless router

      Hi - I just tried to log into my wireless router (DG834GT) via http://192.168.0.1 using the username "admin" and the password "sky" and it doesn't let me in. Has the default password ever been anything other than "sky"? If not, what are my options? I need to get in to allow port forwarding...

      Thanks.

      Are you using ethernet to access the router? admin, sky should work (remember to use all lower case). If not try admin admin. Failing that try a hard reset on the router.

      Re: Password to wireless router

      I tried using a wired connection and also the wireless connection. Both allow me to get to the login page, but neither allow me in. I will try with the password "admin". If I do a hard reset, will it reset the sky login username/password also? If so, I need to go back to sky to get a new router, right?

      Thanks,
      Nick

      Re: Password to wireless router

      To do a hard reset, use a pin and put it in the small hole on the back of the router for about 10 to 15 seconds.

      You will not lose your Sky login details, all this does is reset the router back to factory default. You would lose any changes that you have made to the router in the admin panel, ie added wireless keys etc

      Re: Password to wireless router

      Resetting the router by pushing a biro in the hole at the back for about 10 secs should reset the router to 'factory' default. The standard user/password, admin and sky should work. There should be no need for a new router. Have you flashed the router with non-standard firmware?

      Re: Password to wireless router

      Ok. Thanks. I'm pretty sure noone has change the firmware.

      I'm not sure what "factory defaults" means - is this Netgear or Sky defaults?Assuming that no changes have been made to the config since it was delivered by Sky, if I do a hard reset will any other settings that are sky specific be reset? For example, I am guessing SSID and network key will be lost. These I can put back no problem, but I am worried there may be some other piece of vital information that I need to get the broadband connection up again.

      Thanks,
      Nick

      Re: Password to wireless router

      If you do a factory reset, the router is then reset to the same condition as it was when you received it from Sky.
