      Sky Firmware Update Hijack

      Hello all,

      We're new to Sky broadband (having setup the router for the first time today). Around an hour after switching on, we received the following message, which looked genuine enough. But the URL ending seemed rather worrying!

      Looking for some reassurance that this is normal?! I can't see any reference to such a message when searching via Google.

      Many thanks in advance!

      Re: Sky Firmware Update Hijack

      That is fine, your sky router is updating the firmware.
      You can compare and check the router firmwares (in your router settings at 192.168.0.1), which are kept up to date on this forum here;

      Great, thank you: I was worried about the use of the word "hijack" within the URL - gets the heart beating!
