      Sky password generator site and/or restoring Netgear configs

      jst aquired a Netgear DGN3500 router to replace my DGN1000 which i have posted on here doesn't want to play ball with Anytime+

      Anyway I have tried to go onto Sky router password generator to create a new password to enter into the DGN3500 but when I press the link to teh relevant Sky router it times out.

      Anyone got another link

      or...

      Is there a way of taking the profile backup I have of the DGN1000 router (which has the Sky userid and password in it but encrypted) and restoring this to the DGN3500

      What a b****y plonker I am. Only inputting the wrong id off the back of the Sky router. Three chuffin hours wasted. It's not like I haven't done it before either.

      On the positive the Anytime+ is happy with the DGN3500

      Nothing like a bit of honesty on the forum.

      In fairness most issues to do with the password generators are due to the wrong details being put in, so you are not alone.

      Thanks for confirming that all is working well with Anytime+ too. Many others have reported some issues in the past.
