      Sky set wireless encryption to WPA by default -- you should simply be able to offer the passphrase (printed on the router label) to the WG111's Netgear Wizard.

      Also consider interference -- as the Sky router is probably on a different channel than your old model. The Wizard lets you scan for neighbouring wireless networks. Ideally switch the router and adapter to a channel 6 stops away from any strong neighbouring signal -- instruction are in the Sky CD help files.

      Relocate or change frequency of cordless phone base station, video sender etc.
