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!

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
