      Sky FTTH Trial - router admin ID/password

      The nice men from Sky arrived today to install the trial of my fibre-to-the-home broadband. Performance so far isn't great - only about 22meg down and 15meg up (I'd expected more, to be honest). The router is the Huawei HG8245.

      However, the old login of admin/sky don't work, so I can't do any admin on the router. Kind of a problem, as I need to set up some port forwarding, change the DHCP scope, etc, etc.

      Has anybody got the router admin id/password? Or am I going mad? I've done a lot of googling today, and can't find it anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks.

      Huawei default logins are normally either blank, admin/admin, admin/password, or the company it was made for. In this case it might be sky/sky.

      Give them a go.

      Thanks for the ideas - none of them work, although leaving them blank produces a 'required field' type error message to pop up.

      However, looking at the source of the login page, there's something about the router locking-out further login attempts for one minute after three successive failures, although there seems to be a bug as I'm not got that error message to appear. Wondering if I need to reboot the unit ever three attempts and whether that would help at all...

      Holy Moly, I am excited.

      Can you please confirm your location and post your speedtest result from this website.

      Your modem should be SRA compatible so your speed should go up on it's own within the next few days. If you reboot your router meanwhile it will take longer for your speed to go up.

      Give root/admin a go. That's another one i've used with Huawei in the past.
