      If you have set your Sky email up online then you will not have to do it again. If you are reading your email via a client such as Outlook Express or Outlook then you will have to enter all your deatils again. The Email Forum contains straight forward and easy to follow guides to help you do this.

      Plug the router into your ethernet port and that's all ! Open Internet explorer or whatever browser you use and you'll be online. It really is as easy as that!

      If you are connecting using the wiress connected to your computer then all you need to do is as Russ says above, just plug it all in and of you go. You do not need to use the CD for anything.

      Use the File and Settings transfer Wizard to move all your setting including email from your old PC to your new. From experience it is better to start it on the new PC, save the Setup file to a USB flash drive, plug it into your old PC, run the Setup and follow the instructions. Don't delete anything from your old PC until you are sure you have everything you want.

      Just to repeat other member's advice, don't put the Sky disk anywhere near your new PC, except as a coaster for your tea/coffee cup.

      Yes, just enter the security code found on the back of your router when prompted on connecting and you should be good to go!
