      Unless you have changed it, the password is on the bottom of your router.

      Just log in to the router and put a tick next to the wifi security you want to use and save settings.

      Just in case:

      Type 192.168.0.1 in to the address line of your browser.

      Enter the username: admin
      and password: sky (unless you have changed this too)

      Click on the 'Setup' tab.

      The 'Network Key' is down the bottom. Select the type of security first (i.e. WPA-PSK).

      You can set the password to anything you wish. Don't use a password that you normally use to sign in to your email. Set it to something new that you will find easy to remember or write it down.

      The default passwords for the Netgear DG834GT have been posted elsewhere on the Internet so I would encourage you to set it to something else if for this reason alone.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
