There is a way, you won't find it here and ringing sky will get you nowhere as the details are coded into your router and the sky support agents do not know them.

Used to work for Sky and BT ADSL tech support but please don't hate me for it :smileywink:

it can be done by flashing your router to extract the username and password but it is against the t&c of sky and you could be disconnected if caught.

Re: how do I find out my username and password to log onto the Internet useing a different router

Hi Lew

 

Welcome to the Help Centre Forums

 

This has happened to me in the past as well so done a bit of digging around to find this, if you follow the steps below this should help find it.

 

In your web browser bar type 192.168.0.1 then return

In the login box, enter the username admin and the password sky.

 

Click the Set up Tab

 

At the bottom of the Set up Page there will be a list of network keys, the one you are after should have a little black icon next to it.

 

Let us know how you get on

 

Cheers

To log into your Sky Wireless Router, enter 192.168.0.1 into the address bar of your browser. You will see a login box. The username is 'admin' and the default password is 'sky'

Re: how do i find out my username and password to log onto the internet useing a different router

Hi,

 

I'm trying to setup my sky broadband with a netgear N300 and it simply cannot connect.

 

How do I retrieve my username and password without flashing the router, whatever that means.

 

Please help as I'm going nuts

 

 

regards

Pete

I need to change my wireless network password.

I have gone to http://192.168.0.1/ and clicked on change wireless network name.  Log in box comes up.  Many attempts later, it will not accept my user name or password.  Have tried admin and sky as seen previously on here, doesn't work.  have tried my log in details which i used to set up sky account / sky mail etc.  nothing is working.  very frustrating.  please advise.
