      If the AOL router uses a different address from Sky (ie not 192.168.0.1) then you may be able to connect both the routers at the same time with LAN cables and flick between them as you transfer settings.

      You could move the Sky router to your room whilst you do this as it's not necessary to be connected to the Internet whilst you enter most details.
      Excellent thank you!

      And do you know on Netgear router stated above if when someone resets the router does this also reset the WEP Key? I am aware that the WEP Key isnít on the modem what so ever, if it doesnít reset the WEP/Log In details (for the router configuration page ie 192.168.0.1) Key then that will be awesome!

      When the Netgear is reset, it will lose ALL custom settings - as I recall netgears default to no wireless security.

      By the way, you should use WPA2-psk or WPA-psk and not WEP as wep keys can be cracked in about 2 minutes by anyone who has downloaded the right software. You can enable WPA-PSK and configure the netgear's wpa key on the wireless settings page.

      There seems to be a thread about configuring non-sky routers here. Non-Sky Router Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


      Once you've got the netgear set up and working use "backup settings" in its menu so you can restore it quickly.
