Is it a Sky branded router and is it new?

Reset the router (insert a paper clip into the small hole at the rear) and run through the set up steps.
Failing that, phone Netgear/Sky helpline

thought the user name was admin and password =password might be wrong though

Yes its a Sky Broadband its about 2 years old and is not second hand.

If I reset the router what papers and stuff will I need to do it. I would like to avoid that if possible as I don't think I have the papers left.

Thanks for the help

Have you tried

login = admin

password = password
all lower case?

  LastChip 15:00 25 Jul 2008

The default for that should be:

User name: admin

Password: sky

Note: they *are* case sensitive and of course, if the password's been changed from the default (which it should), it could now be anything.

The User name is hard coded and cannot be changed.

if this is a router provided by sky as i understand they are all preset by sky and you maynot be allowed acess in the way you describe, however it still may be possible to acess some facilites by the installation of software on the cd that came with the router
normally as sinbads says admin and password but i think sky rounters are different

The Sky Broadband Manual says:

Enter in your browsers address bar
You will be prompted to login and should enter:

Admin (for the Username)
Sky (for the Password)

Note the first letters are Uppercase, the rest lower case.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES USE THE SKY CD. That's my advice! It will only load free trial software.

They all don't work but thanks for the help.

Do you think phoning Sky up and asking for assistance may help?

I have tried
Login =

Passwords =

Have you tried admin (or Admin) for both?
