      Router Password ?? #cat /tmp/nvram

      there's a 9 digit password when you enter the #cat /tmp/nvram

      guess this is the router password as i cant see it on the router settings as its encrypted

      got my username 12 number/digits@skydsl

      just confirm it for me as everything thing seems to be working nicely with the router, today ive been told i have service (havent checked)

      finally i might just be able to access sky and also use my modem at my mates without cocking it up

      cheers Russ

      This is after you've flashed the Sky DG834GT to Netgear firmware? (Ref your post http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/showt...0985#post30985)

      I have to confess I've got a bit lost with what you are trying to do

      right the question

      ive flashed the box gained access to the basic settings - username and password

      vishal mentions using telnet via dos - tying in the above gives you loads of jargon


      smack bang in the middle of the jargon is the sky username and password

      sky user name 12 numbers and digits - the password is 9 number pppoa at the end

      before i go entering my mates orange and bt usernames to test the router

      as im still no connected with sky even tho they tell me i am

      my connection light is on my mates BT line - but scared to enter info if ive not got the right password


      so if somebody tells me ive got the right info then i can mess make sure it fine


      sorry for the long reply

      Your Sky username is the MAC code of the router (you'll find this on a sticker on the bottom of it) followed by @skydsl.

      Your Sky password is a set of numbers and digits but does not have pppoa at the end.

      if you go through the dos side of cardoso's thread it give you that

      #cat /tmp/nvram

      then you see a great wod of info - with usename password

      there's the 9 digit number just ends with pppoa after the nine digits, i was just trying to attain if this was the correct number not being a programmer just a plain old net user

      if not im buggered cus ive already changed it to orange at my mates house

      The password is just the alphanumeric string - ignore the ppoa at the end.

      In any event, I think I've read that if you were to restore the Sky firmware (on the Sky CD) to the router then you'd get the Sky username/password back.

      Yes, you do. Which supports the theory that the username & password are not actually stored in the router, but generated on the fly from the MAC address.
