      Unhappy Pls Help With Wireless Security.

      I have tried accessing the wireless router via the lan, but my lan adaptor my laptop is damaged so it currently not working.

      I have read on this forum that someone was able to access the router security setting via wireless, can somebody shed some light on how to do this, so i get reset my security key.

      I look forward to some advice.

      Thank You.

      Probably the only recourse you have would be to reset your router back to defaults (reset button held in for 10 seconds). If you're using a Sky router then the wireless key would then be as found on the bottom of the router. If you're using another router then look in the manual.

      Are you on Vista or XP?
      Also is the wireless being managed by windows or other software
      What happens when you connect to the sky network with the WPA key under the bottom of your router after a reset?

      You must know someone that has a PC or laptop?

      Unplug your router and take it and the supplied ethernet cable round their house. Then power up the router and connect a PC/laptop (doesn't need the phone connection).

      Log in using admin/sky which are the default router password and username. Go to wireless settings and create a new key. Take it all back home, connect it back up, put the new key into your laptop and you're away.
