      setting up WHR-G54S as Bridge help pls

      Ok, I have just had my Sky HD box installed and want to connect to anytime +.
      I currently have nothing listed in anytime as they said it may take up to 72hr to start up
      The problem i have is that my sky router which is connected to my computer in another room, not accessable via an ethernet cable.
      when BT came and installed my sky broadband router it left me with my old Buffalo router/bridge/access point doing nothing. so i wish to use this instead of buying the sky connector.
      after connecting the router up to my sky box in the sky setup menu it shows up :-
      local connection - ok
      service connection - fail
      ip address 192.168.11.2
      DHCP - on

      I have phoned sky and they confirmed my anytime + is activated.
      is the service connection fail because i havent recived the connection yet or because my buffalo hasnt connected to my sky router propery, do i need to enter the sky router wpa password somewhere?
      or do i need to set up my buffalo in someway, ( the switch on the bottom is set to auto and not "bridge") if i set it to bridge the sky box dosnt pick it up
      iam a noob when it comes to networks so any stright forward english jargon free replys would be most greatfull Thank you

      Unless you have changed the IP range on the Sky router, you will have to correct the IP on the Buffalo. This has to be in the same range as the Sky router. Go into its settings using an ethernet cable and change the IP address to 192.168.0.254. The router DHCP range can remain as it is. Set up the SSID and network key, unplug the ethernet, plug it into the Sky box and it should connect to the Sky router. If it doesn't, switch the box to Standby for a few minutes then switch it on again.
