      Question Wireless light stays off

      Hi,

      My Netgear router is fairly old now (its a DG834GT), just today the wireless light has gone off, in the routers setting page I have done a Reboot, but it's still off.

      I can connect fine with wires.

      I firstly wondered if its worth d/l the routers firmware upgrade (from Netgears site)? The thing thats putting me off doing this is in case it knocks me offline completely.

      If my router is just old and had it, will Sky send me a new one? If so who/which dept' do I call? I don't want to call tech help as I can't afford to go around in circles with someone who's reading a script, telling me to try stuff I've already tried.

      Any advice would be gratefully received!

      Thank you,

      Lisa

      If your router is failing there is no other way to get it replaced other than through Sky Support
