      If you are getting the same response with your Xbox when using ethernet then that would seem to be pointing at the router as being faulty, not your PC. All you can do is phone Sky and report it. They will replace your router, but be aware that they will charge 28 if it is out of the 12 months warranty. You can get a Sky router cheaper on eBay.

      its the pc port at fault as the xbox worked with an ethernet wire, when i used the xbox ethernet wire on the pc it showed a connection fault.

      Check the Device Manager first, it may simply need the drivers reinstalled. What OS are you using?
