      Using Sky Wifi Connector on another device?

      Hi,
      does anyone know if you can use the sky wifi connector on another device? If it has already been configured via the set top box and connects to the router ok will it work just plugging into another device?


      cheers

      It depends on what one you have. The version 1 and 2 will work in other devices, the Version 3, the Mini with only a USB input will not. At the very least it would require drivers which are not available.

      Oh ok. It is basically a black box with sky written on it, with an Ethernet port.

      Any idea if this will work with other devices? I'd like to plug it in to a Panasonic bluray player via Ethernet and hook it up online

      If it has an ethernet port then it will work in another device. You can set it up on the Sky box, then plug it into another device, but there is a way to access its software so you can set it up on a PC. Can't remember where the instructions are at the moment.
