Sky Sagem F@ST2504n Router

 

When you receive your router from Sky, it is preconfigured with the following default settings.

Username: admin

Password: sky

 

For obvious reasons, these are not very secure, as anyone on Sky Broadband would potentially know your router login details.

So let's change the password to something more secure.

 

Step 1

You need to login to your router

Type https://192.168.0.1 into your browser URL bar. (or just click on the link)

Now you need to click on Further Diagnostic Help (marked A)

login screen

In the box marked B you need to enter the default settings,

Username: admin

Password: sky

Then press OK

 

Step 2

Click on set password in the top area of the screen

Set Password

You then need to enter your old password which is sky (marked A)

Enter a new stronger password in B

Then repeat the new password in C

Then click apply (marked D)

Changed Password

The page will then change to a new login box, enter your new details and then click OK

Username: admin

Password: your new one that you just entered

Login again

All done, you have now succesfully changed your password.

 

Please note: If you ever reset the router, by sticking a pen (or similar) in the little hole on the back of the router, it will reset the default username and password back to admin and sky
