      Adding Wireless to a previously non wireless Sky installation

      Hi,
      I'm changing over from a wired connection to a wireless connection for my sister. She has some form of Sky router. I've had wireless from BT for years so I have taken a spare wireless router I have and it detects the DSL but wont login.

      I've tried asking Sky support but they dont have a clue what I'm talking about but I need to know were to find the login information for the router to the internet. Normally, BT broadband requires a user id and password - which is not the same as your email id and password - but I just dont know where to find it.

      Anyone got any ideas?

      Thanks,

      Rodw

      Re: Adding Wireless to a previously non wireless Sky installation

      Hi,
      Yeah ok but that router is not the one my sister has. At least logging in to the admin page looks completely different. Also, from scanning around in the admin pages I didnt see any wireless settings.

      In any case, the router I want to put in is a lot better. So do you know where to find the user id and password?

      Thanks,

      Rod

      Re: Adding Wireless to a previously non wireless Sky installation

      You will need to work out which Sky router she has, Sky supplied 3 different types to my knowledge, Black ones Sagem and Netgear, and a white Netgear one. They all have different firmware and hidden login details. Sky wont give you the login details because its against there terms and conditions to use a different router, but there are ways of extracting the information from the router.

      All Sky supplied routers are wireless so you don't need to change it.
