URGENT: SSE username and password


[link to this post]
 
I've just bought a Billion Bipac 8800NL router to replace the router provided by SSE, my ISP.

I need to find the SSE Username and Password in order to configure the Bipac. Could anyone provide me with these?

This is urgent and I'd really, really appreciate help here.

Thanks

The username and password will usually be unique to your account, so only SSE will be able to provide them

Login to your SSE account via their website - most ISPs will store the information you require there.

Thanks for your suggestion. I've just logged in to my account on SSE's website and the information isn't available there frown

I was thinking that this would work like BT Infinity where the username is broadband.user@btbroadband.com and no password is required.

Best wishes

It would be more likely to work with no authentication like other TalkTalk connections but I suppose they need to have a username and password to distinguish their customers from other TalkTalk resellers.

Wireshark is the usual way of finding out.

Thanks. I'd never heard to Wireshark before. I think it might be beyond my capabilities. I'm hoping that someone out there will have tried to configure a non-SSE router and will have the generic logon details.

Best wishes

You have to call SSE and they'll provide you with the information.

Username is

[First 9 digits of Account number]-sse@ssebb.co.uk

They'll provide the password.

I followed a pdf written by dragon2611 to run wireshark to determine my Sky username and password.

That's encouraging. Do you know where I can find the .pdf? A link would be brilliant. Thanks and best wishes
