am appealing to you as Sky are a tad on the uncoperative side ( it's the politest word i could use and driven me up the wall.
Unti last friday 23rd I was an Orange man and all was well. Router in my study linked to my desktop; one laptop connected in my daughters room and one Xbox 360 connected in my sons room downstairs via seperate Netgear wallplugs XE102's These use a link to the router via a netgear xe102 wall plugged bridge. All was well.
The I switched to sky........ supposed on teh 17th but in reality was the 23rd October before i finally got telephone and broadband back.
I change the to the Sky router ( a rebadged Netgear dg934g) I followed teh booklet exactly . Now ~;
I have a very odd dial tone and sky's own testing say's my line is not compatable with Sky! I have reported this but they say everthing's fine as tehyc ansee my broadband and line are working.
The desktop is working with the new router but neither the laptop nor X box are working. If I plug them directly into the router they work but not over the wall plugged bridges.
All setting on these machines are set to Auto and I don't want to use full wireless if possible.
Anyone please please help.

There is no reason why these should not work with your Sky router. I think they may still be looking for your old one. Uninstall them completely and start again as if you had just got them. Not sure about how you would uninstall them, but removing them from the wall socket for a few minutes should do the trick.

Agree, you may have two network names/address as the Sky router should function exactly the same. First step is to unplug the old network and leave it unplug for say 15 minutes. This should cause it to look for a new address when reconnected - assuming DHCP is set to 'auto' on the plug set up.

Is the dial tone intermittant? If so you probably have a voicemail. Dial 1571 to have a listen.

Thanks everyone for your replies - have tried and still failed. any more suggestions ? Please help as life without keeping teens apart in the own little electronic worlds is hell.
PS The dial tone is still not a constant burrr noise but an brrpurrburrpurr if that makes sense.

You dial tone is probably down to voicemail but this has nothing to do with your homeplug problem.
Do you have encryption enabled, if so try taking it off, or double check that the network password is correct. What lights are showing on the homeplugs? Have you tried rebooting the router while connected to the homeplugs?
