      Have you set the D-Link to work with Sky router's WPA passphrase ?

      If you have and it still doesn't work I'd use the ethernet link to go inter the router user interface via Internet Explorer (see Sky CD help files for IP address and user interface login username/password). Once in disable encryption temporarily and have a look at wireless modes. Back at the D-Link's utilities make sure that the wireless modes match. Once a connection works, look at restoring encryption.

      Start the D-Link's utilities and select wireless encryption. If offered a choice of WEP or WPA, select the latter. In the password section put in the passphrase printed on the Sky router.

      Alternatively, follow the Windows Connect To menus and apply encryption there -- frankly I much pefer the utilities provided with adapters.

      If no WPA is offered you may have an older 802.11b adapter. These only support WEP and you should reset the router to that.
