      Use a ball-point pen and press and hold the router re-set button for a few seconds. Note: All your other settings will be lost too tho'!

      Unless anyone knows any other way, I feel a factory reset looming where you press the button on the back for more than 10 seconds until the "tick" LED lights up. The router will then reboot to factory values.

      WARNING - this will reset all you router settings to the default values!

      Login then admin with password sky

      You will then need to change back any settings you made when you first set up the router.

      If you use Firefox you can view all login & password details (as long as you have it set to remember passwords)

      Tools - Options - Security Tab - Show Passwords
