      Official Sky wireless adaptor with non sky router

      So as Sky were giving away free wireless adaptors. I decided to take advantage and get one. However, I'm using a Billion 7800N and though it can find my network and lets me attempt a password input, it fails to connect.

      any fix for this?

      Try setting up the network on your Sky box Manually. Services>Settings>Picture>6>Select>Green button and put in -
      192.168.1.100.*
      255.255.255.0
      192.168.1.254*
      208.67.222.222

      * This assumes you have the Billion default of 192.168.1.254

      When you have done this put your box into Standby, connect the wireless bridge, switch back on and go to the wireless settings and enter your router network key.

      Awesome thanks. It didn't work at first but I tried the manual settings for name of network, encryption type etc and it worked that way.
