      Help needed for setting up a Pocket Mini Router MicroNEXT MN-WR546B

      Hi,

      I am new to this forum and not especially technical. I bought a MicroNEXT Pocket Mini Router MicroNEXT MN-WR546B. I was hoping that when this arrived I would just be able to plug this in the port at the back of my Sky+ box, however, thiis does not appear to be the case.

      Anyone out there use one of these?

      If so, how do you get them to work as I didn't undertsnad the instructions that came with them.

      Many thanks
      Paul

      Not much information available for this device but from what I can gather you will first have to use the switch on the device to put it into Client Mode. Then plug it into your PC/Laptop to set it up. Not sure of the address but it may be 192.168.16.254. Username and password will probably be admin. Enter the password for your router*, if there is a space for it then change its IP address to one in the same range as your router. If there is an option to use DHCP select that. When you have done that, unplug it and plug it into your Sky box.

      *You may find that this has to be done when you plug it into the Sky box.

      You might have been better enquiring about Sky's own connector, you might even have got one free.

      Thanks for the reply, I will give that a go. I think I may have blown it for the free Sky Wireless router as I alreday tried the wired version,

      Most appreciated.

      Hi,

      I never did get it working and it is stuck in a box somewhere. I received a free wireless receiver in the end. Suggest you get one as the original thing I tried was somewhat over complicated.

      Cheers
      Paul
