      Thumbs down Setting up wireless network help

      Hi

      I am currently trying to set up a wireless ntwork so i can play my X box 360 wirelessly, but everytime i try it asks me for my Username and Password for the ISP i believe. Is there anyone who can help me get my username and password? sky never sent us anything like that apart from the sky.com registration.

      I am currently running vista if that helps.

      It is not the ISP's username it's asking for but the SSID and the password for the wireless network encryption. Sky set this up for you as a default and will have placed a small business card sized card in the box which contains this information. This will be current unless you have changed it for something else. Find the card and you should be OK.
      If you cannot find the card, post back

      Remember wireless sucks for gaming, mine was always dropping out and I would go from 5 green bars to red within a few seconds.

      All this was sorted with a couple of homeplugs, works just like a wired connection without the long lead, no more drop outs, still cannot hit anything but that's now my fault (although I still blame the connection from time to time)
