      Sky Wifi Password problems

      The network key on my router won't work when I try to input it for the password on Ipod wifi. So I've followed the official Sky instructions here: Sky Help: Find and change your wireless password

      But when I enter 192.168.0.1 and the username and password (admin and sky, both in lowercase), nothing happens. The box just pops up again on a blank background. The screenshot is the second or third time I tried it.



      Any ideas what to do?

      Try another browser. If there is still no joy, try holding in the reset button on the router for at least 10 secs or until the lights flash. Remember this will wipe any personal settings so if you have ports forwarded for example, make a backup of the settings before you reset. Resetting will revert the wifi password to the default printed on the router label.

      Tried that on both Internet Explorer and Firefox. No luck.

      Tried that, and input the Network Key into the Ipod Wifi. Still doesn't work. :/

      If you are using the default key, remember all the characters are capital letters.

      I'll ask a member of my family who knows about computers later today. If that doesn't work, I'll wait until I replace my current computer and router (which are 8 years old) soon.
