      how to re-install broadband

      Hello all,
      firstly apologies but my knowledge of computers & broadband is very limited so please be kind with me!
      When I first got Sky BB about five years ago I seem to remember that I just put a CD in the PC to download Sky broadband and there it was, no problems since.
      However I am thinking of getting a new PC so how do I once again get Sky broadband onto new computer? sorry if this sounds trivial to a lot f you but I just have no idea, many thanks for anticipated replies.

      You don't need the cd. Once your system is set up, and connected with an ethernet cable, you should connect.

      Its literally plug and play.

      If you want to connect wirelessly, you need to look for your routers wireless network and put in the network key from the bottom of the router in capital letters when prompted.

      It really is that simple, but if you have any problems theres plenty of help on here.

      As per above its just a simple case of plugging in your router, waiting for all the green lights to flash all ok and clicking a web browser and thats it.

      The CD contains just useless info but you can install it if you wish has no effect over your broadband.
