      Tried asking Sky for a recommended brand of USB Wireless Adapter but they won't give out that information... so to save me buying another adapter that may or may not work - just wondered if anyone had bought one themseleves, or know of anyone that has... that works!

      Is it as straight forward as just getting a Netgear one? Will that solve the problem?

      If anyone can come back and let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

      Hope to hear back from someone soon.

      The Netgear RangeMax adapter does work with the Sky Netgear router but, as mentioned above, the range between the two is disappointing. I think this is a router issue but its possible that the Sky recommended/sold adapter works better - perhaps others will comment.
