      Default network key

      Just after I got it, i replaced the sky router (2504n) with an airport Extreme; mainly because i had a lot of apple equipment. After working problem free for years, the AE has died. Sky are posting a new router, but it is some days away. I

      I do have an old AE which i could use as a temporary solution, but sky will not release the pppoe credentials. They did give me the Mac address and pointed me at these forums.

      As far as i can see, i also need the default network key for the password generator to work. Is that the case? Sky won't give me that either. I know longer have the old sky router.sky


      Thanks

      Your old credentials will still work OK, no need to wait for the new router.

      Hi, unfortunately the AE has crashed with that info locked inside, and i haven't had the sky router for years - so no obvious way of getting this.

      Re: Default network key

      As you are on Fibre the actual username and password are not important. Anything does provided it is in the correct format. Have a look at this thread-http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/extracting-sky-router-passwords/60097-password-no-longer-needed-fttc-fibre.html

      You will find many recent posts about this in the relevant section.
