      Got my activation date..... now what?

      Letter from Sky this morning saying my activation date for the mid package is 8th August or up to 3 days after that.

      What do i have to do?

      1) Do i use the installation cd or just plug the router in and off i go?

      2) Is it possible to plug the router in now and configure the wireless connection on my other pc to save messing about later?

      3) If 2 is possible will this affect my current wireless configuration?

      I am at hospital on the 8th so ideally i would like it all set up and ready to go before then to keep the wife and kids happy if i'm not here when it gets connected.

      PS i am using a BT voyager 1050 wireless adaptor if it makes any difference.

      Many thanks.

      1. Most advise just plugging in, unless you want the AV, which can be installed by exploring the CD. There is nothing else worth having on it.
      2. There is nothing to stop you plugging in the router and configuring your PCs.
      3. The final connection would have to be done when you go live or you will loose your existing setup.

      I use a BT 1050 with no problems.
