      You can use pretty much any dongle. Sky will only offer technical support on their own though.

      What's the problem that's making you feel suicidal?

      You shouldn't need to adjust any settings in the router, just enter the right security code/encryption in the dongle set up software. Theoretically that shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes. See the wireless forum for info if you're stuck.
