      Help ! - No Ethernet Port

      Tried to setup new sky wireless router (the black one, think its the DG934G) by following the instructions in the sky booklet but the PC has no ethernet port (it does have XP at least).

      There is a belkin wireless adapter setup on the PC. As this was a "bespoke" PC and is on borrowed time anyway I dont want to mess about putting ethernet cards in. Is there any way I can skip the ethernet connection bit and setup wirelessly?

      If the new routers are shipped with wireless on as default then yes.
      Just search for the wireless network and enter the security details as provided with the router.
      If wireless is off by default then you will need to access it via ethernet ( maybe you could borrow a laptop ? ) to enable wireless.
      PS just been reliably informed that they are shipped with wireless on so ignore the second bit.
