Username & Password from a Sky DG934G Router

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Originally devised by James67

Update: September 2008

This tutorial is no longer needed to obtain your username and password from the Netgear V2 Sky DG934G Router. You can just visit Jame's website and input the details required, to reveal the username and password.

You can also use Jame's website to obtain the username and password from the additional Sky routers:

Sky Netgear DG834GT

Sky Sagem F@ST 2504

More information, and the URL is here


This tutorial only applies to a Black Netgear V2 Sky DG934G Router

Download the unofficial updated Firmware at your own risk (this image has now been removed)

And save to your desktop or a location of your choice.


Go to your browser and type in then using your username and password, which is usually admin and sky, log into the router.

  1. Select Router Upgrade
  2. Click Browse and then look for the file you just downloaded and select it
  3. Once selected, click on Upload
  4. Do not turn your router off or touch until it completes the process

Once this has finished and you have reconnected on your Sky Broadband connection, open a Command Prompt and type the following:

  1. Telnet then hit enter
  2. Type cat /tmp/password.txt then hit enter


Your username and password should then appear in the Telnet Box. Make a note of this for reference purposes if you wish to.

SkyUser make this information available in the interests of our members. Please do not upgrade your FW unless you fully understand the risks that it could go wrong and render your router useless. Please remember also, that it is against the Terms and Conditions of Sky Broadband. You also run a high risk of having your Broadband Connection suspended as well as receiving no Technical Support.

For barebones telnet on XP click Start, Run... and type telnet.

Hi James67, I have recently received one of the Black (Sagem look alike)Router that has been branded as a Netgear DG934G with the firmware version V2.02.34. Just to confirm will I be able to use this telnet .img file on this router and do you know if this firmware file that we need to load so we can get the username and password off the router has the VPN Passthrough option enabled?

Thanks appreciate your help.

You would be better asking this on the forums in case James does not read it.

URL removed for image, and further information added, you can now get all this information, without having to flash any of the Sky routers.

See the link in the update, above.

I recently bought the DG934g Sky router. I had the white one originally, however it was not connecting wirelessly. It turns out it was faulty so I bought this one but I can't connect to this router at all. What do I do? I would really appreciate your help. I understand that I have to download the firmware, however I don't know where to download it from. Help!
