      sky ADSL password

      Hello,

      I have non-sky router and trying to connect to sky ISP via it but till have I have no luck because I think I need ADSL/ ISP usr & pwd. I have totally lost the original sky router I do not have LAN MAC address & Default WPA network key I have tried the site Sky router password generator but of no help with the LAN MAC address & Default WPA key.

      I tried calling sky but as you know they won’t share the userID & pwd with you.

      Is there is any other way I can get my sky ADSL password to be used with generic router?

      Many Thanks,

      You might be using MER which doesn't require a username/password combination, but instead requires the mac address of your router to match their records (plus it needs to accept some non standard bespoke DHCP options).

      What router are you using now to connect to Sky? Can't you get the details from that?

      Yes I can but this is not the orginal router supplied by sky, I am using a router borrowed from my friend, do you think the method given in this website Sky router password generator will still work? I suspect this will need my orginal router specs ?

      Re: sky ADSL password

      Provided the router is not used by someone else while you are using its details, there will be no problem. If someone else uses it there is a chance that either your router or it will be unable to connect. So if you are going to use its username and password, put it away in a drawer for emergencies. The login details are unique to the router not the user, so any Sky ADSL router will work on any Sky broadband line. The generator site will give you the details you need.

      Re: sky ADSL password

      Thanks Isitme, I'll try this on this borrowed router to get the usr & password. Once I get the usr & password I'll use it on the Generic router I have, it is sky grey router (Sagem F@st™ 2404) but now flashed to SAGEM generic firmware. Do you also have the steps to configure SAGEM generic firmware to sky (WAN Settings etc) ?

      Many Thanks,
