      Is password needed to use Sky BB

      My inlaws have signed up to sky bb (Connect). they have had sent to them the router and the user name and the activiation date (which has now passed)

      The password has still not arrived. they have been told it should arrive soon in the post.

      Am i correct in understanding the password is only needed to access emails through the Sky bb home page and that the interent can still be setup.

      You are correct in your assumption Rammy987. The password theyt send is to access the Sky BB Portal and that includes emails. If they already have an active account on sky.com with that same username then the password will be the same.

      Best to get the router setup and the see if the 'i' light goes green, if so the router has made a successful connection to the network and they should be able to start surfing.

      you are correct,

      Thanks for the quick replies. I'll have a go at setting it up then

      they have never had sky.com account as they have never had the internet before. i guess they'll have to wait for the password to start retrieving emails.

      better off waiting for the Gmail (google) version (out soon)
      or use hotmail / yahoo

      have a read on the forums about problems people have had with sky email
