      Can connect to the net but not see webpages help!

      Hi all looking for some advice as a skybroadband newbie!

      I got my router and letter and was told my line would go active on the 9th of March. I plugged the router in anyway and its connecting to the internet. I can get my PC to connect to the router but when I try and load a webpage it tells me its unavailable. What am I doing wrong? It is recieving and sending data and the icon in the taskbar is tellin gme its connected.

      Also, I usually have my router plugged into my xbox in the living room and connect my pc to the router wirelessly. Is this ok? Someone told me if I put the router straight through my PC it should run faster, is there any truth in this or is it fine to leave plugged in and connect wirelessly? Especially when first starting up as a sky customer?

      Thanks in advance

      How are you connecting the router to the PC?

      Is it wired or wireless?

      I am connecting wireless.

      Someone on another forum has told me its connecting to the exchange but not the internet as its not been activated yet. My activation date was 9th of March but I thought I would try connecting it earlier. Could this be the reason?

      I would have thought so, try it again on March 9th and see what happens. You seem to have your router unusally early.

      Hi Alan, Yeah I ordered SkyBB last Wednesday, recieved the router on the Friday and got my letter about the activation on the Saturday. I was just hoping on the off chance it would work early

      Good to see someone from the dvdtimes here too!
