      You could just turn off wireless on the Sky router and plug the Belkin into it via ethernet to use it's wireless. You won't break the T&C's this way.

      You could try changing the Sky routers wifi channel to see if that helps. Try channels 1, 7 and 12 to see if it makes any difference. If it doesn't then Smythy99 has an excellent solution.
