      Have a look at this tutorial -
      Configure your Sky Netgear Router's Wireless Settings

      If you have to post back again, please mention your OS.

      I don't know how you are getting a 150Mbs connection, the maximum you can get with the GT is 108mbps and 54 with the others. You are using a Sky router?
