      Many thanks for that

      I'll grab the prog' and run the utility as described in your thread.

      Just had a quick look at the config' file and think I spotted a routine that may encrypt the actual username/password ?

      Does this modem use the Broadcom chip?

      You'll find the router's administration password in the config file (encoded in base64), but it doesn't save the adsl password in there.

      It is a new broadcom chip, bcm6328. It is apparently an economy model which doesn't need a separate switch, and features low power consumption. Currently it seems to be in favour with routers aimed at the ISP market, although the Billion 7800NL uses it too.

      Thanks again for the info... yes, I think I can see a password but couldn't spot anything else of interest although the SSID, Network Key and Channel are all available in 'plain language' from the config file.

      It does appear to be a pretty 'basic' bit of kit with wireless 'g' etc (but thanks Sky) and if at all possible, I think I'll be trying to run my own Netgear stuff, particularly for the wireless 'N' and giga LAN ports.

      I've installed Java and tried to run the .jar file but got an error (all done in a rush in the last hour though), but I'll try doing a clean install of Java and try your extractor program again.... it would be VERY handy to have the username/password

      Cheers

      Yeah, Java seemed the best choice since it makes it more or less OS independent, even though I didn't know any Java before I wrote it , there is also very small part that runs on the router that's written in C.

      Partial success

      Got your app' to work and it does 'talk' to the D-Link but reports it needs a connection to extract the Username/Password ... the 'stats' facility almost worked too

      So, I guess I've got to wait for activation to run the program. There's been some suggestion that any firmware update for the modem is done when first connected and I guess if I'm going to extract the username/password, it needs to be done before it's upgraded from it's original version 1 ?

      Again, it's not as if I'm not grateful to Sky for the kit, but given that it's wireless 'g' and I want/need Giga LAN for the likes of my NAS, I'll be a lot happier if I can connect my own gear.

      Thanks again for all the help

      Thanks for that....

      Chances are I will have to use the D-Link when I first get activated, but I'd like the facility of wireless 'N' and faster LAN ports so if I can, grabbing the username/passord from the D-Link would be great as then, I could use my own modem/router which have these faclities.

      It looks like the D-Link is a a good basic bit of kit... just a shame that Sky seem to want to force us to use the supplied gear and not give us a choice of using our own (at our own risk of course).

      Re: D-Link - what they like?

      Just wondering if anyone's had much success linking their own router to the Sky router (via a LAN to LAN port connection) and thereby just using the Sky modem for WAN connection and everything else via your own kit?

      I'm guessing things like DHCP and maybe even firewall rules would need to be knocked off .... also guessing that your own gear would need to have it's IP address changed (in the same range though) so that it doesn't conflict with the Sky modem?

      I'm thinking that if I cant extract the username/password from the Sky modem, this *may* be a work-around?
