Website blocked by BSkyB Firewall

Hi there,

 

I was wondering if anyone could help with this common firewall problem. I was trying to access http://www.bbc.co.uk/sussex/ but I've received the message 'Website blocked by BSkyB Firewall'. I've tried entering the username: admin and password: sky on http://192.168.0.1/ but this leads to a '401 Unauthorised message' and leaves me unable to login.

I've tried this on two laptops with different antivirus software (McAfee and Kapersky), both running Windows 7. The router is a Sky one as well.

 

I would be grateful if anyone could help me unblock this website especially as it's an important news outlet in times of cold weather!

The details you need to access your router are:

 

Username - admin

Password - sky

Re: Website blocked by BSkyB Firewall

Yes, I've tried entering these login details for my router but as mentioned, receive a '401 unauthorised' message. Are there any other solutions beside using these login details to unblock websites?

Thanks

press and hold the reset button in for 30 secs and it should reset the router back to factory settings
