      there's a lot of variables so best is to either spend some time reading through the other posts and see if someone else has the same issues or call Sky TS.....

      does it work wired?

      Not if the security is turned off and the admin details have not been changed. Everyone and their uncle knows that the user is admin and the pw sky are the defaults for a router broadcasting a Sky SSID. Admittedly with the security on and the admin details changed, it takes a lot of technical expertise and persistence to break into a router.
