      Routers and extracting Usernames and Passwords

      Over the last couple of weeks the V2 routers have succumbed to cracking and have been split wide open so a user could obtain these details.

      As a website we are neutral on this position and do not wish to stifle debate on the subject. However it is abundantly clear that certain members or ex-members believe that we are doing a dis-service to our members.

      We 100% disagree with this stance, as in our view, if the V1 routers were 100% stable, then there would be no need to extract this routers' details. Until such time as a new FW is released to help people who may be having problems with the V1 then this information is here to stay.

      As for the V2 routers, this leads us to a different kettle of fish. The two V2 routers that we have had sent have been 100% reliable, both in performance and the utilities that we have tried. However, granted not everyone is having 100% performance success. People should be made aware of all the facts and then be able to make their own choices as to proceed or not.

      To this end we have introduced a new section to our Website, titled, Extracting Sky Router passwords. This is hidden from view of guests in an attempt to close down the possibilities of the casual user, of which this information would not benefit from.

      We would like to draw your attention to the the thread whereby we have clearly outlined the Terms and Conditions of Sky Broadband and the ones that would be broken. This way, you can make your own judgement on whether to proceed or not.

      We have tried exhaustively to get Sky / Easynet on-board and discuss and outline the pitfalls of these methods, unfortunately no one will comment in an Official capacity.

      As a website, we are here to benefit our members, and I hope that what we have agreed to do proves this to you our members. Stifling debate is one mistake we made a long time ago, in the hopes that Sky would get involved.
