      What am I doing wrong!!!!!

      Hi all, I have just signed up for Sky broadband and I am now beginning to wish I hadn't! I previously had BT Broadband and quite easily connected all WIFI stuff in our house to the router with no problems at all.

      Since plugging in our Sky router I am having major problems in connecting the WIFI devices again and it seems that I can only connect stuff like the Ipod Touch and my daughters laptop to WIFI when our main PC is on, this is connected with the ethernet cable.

      Am I doing something wrong, surely I should be able to connect via WIFI when the main PC is off - bit of a nightmare as almost all our gadgets at home are WIFI!

      Helppppppp

      Need a little more information. Which devices can't you connect. If it's the PC make you it's got a wireless dongle. Not all computers are wireless enabled. If it's a wireless dongle you're having trouble with then call their tech support and they'll be able to get you set up.

      This suggests you have ICS enabled on your PC, does it also have wireless?.

      If you have a BT Hub2 you can connect this to the Sky router to give you an N standard wireless network as you had before.
