'hacking' a Sky router


What am I doing wrong?

I've been to http://dg834gt.mognuts.com/NetgearRouterUtility.html and
gone through the motions to get my Sky username/password combo to try
and configure my own Netgear router (DG834 i think it is) but I cannot
get my router to connect no matter what.

Am I missing something? I've simply put the u/p into the new router, but
it refuses to connect to Sky.

Is there another field I need to be filling in to get it to connect?

What an excellent scam for getting user names and passwords via scripts!
Don't use that site, Google on how to do it yourself instead. There are a
few sites that have info such as Digital Spy.

Can you not upgrade the software like you can a normal 834GT though
http://<router ip>/upgrade.htm&todo=cfg_init

Also don't these need to be returned to Sky once the contract is up, or
do you keep them

Who said I was? I quite like the idea of a spare in case the Sky router
goes **** up. Don't assume.
