Can you provide a link to this online post that explains what you're trying to do?

Without posting the whole thing that would reveal your Sky account name and password what sort of characters do you get? Are they separated by a pipe symbol?

Hi grahamb,

It appears to be 5 symbols; =+...

I am following exactl what it says on but when i paste it in to a text editor, it brings up a few symbols, rather than the printable text, which would allow me to read it and use it to set up my new netgear router. I have tried using different text editors, but the symbols are always the same.

Thanks again
