To get into any router you usually type in 192.168.0.1 into your internet browser, it will then ask for a password and username. Have a look on this link which may help, make sure when your into the settings that internet explorer is not on the block list.

Don't they supply you with a Username and password for the ADSL? if so you can use any supported ADSL router !

I've heard things about Skys firmware being .. some what protective

You can extract the username and password but last time I looked it wasn't simple.

It's trivial . I have a webpage you hit locally that will do it with url injection that I have passed around previously.
