      Well got everything today, letter with password and router set it up by I'm not supposed to be activated until Friday. Can anyone tell me what the software on the CD does that "customizes my browser" I don't want Sky branded stuff all over the pc.


      EDIT Also meant to ask this, I have a subscription to Norton Internet Security that runs out in December. Could I wait until then to install the Mcafee software on the CD and would I get 12 months from December?

      You don't need to use the CD to set it up, just plug it in/connect via wireless and it should work straight away.

      Re: mcaffee, that shouldn't be a problem, not sure if you're able to install it seperately tho.

      When I looked in the CD last night via windows explorer, there is a Mcafee folder with setup.exe. I'm guessing it will be as simple as running this to install it separately. There could be problems if your asked for a serial number though. Hmmm....

      On my previous broadband supplier I had a USB modem and obviously I still had to enter a password etc to connect to my broadband service. Would I be right in saying that with Sky the router does this automatically and therefore does not require you to enter a username or password.

      I also can't get logged into Sky's broadband portal but I have a feeling this is because I don't have a Sky IP address yet.
