I,ve had sky broadband for a while now, all works fine apart from, when I switch on my laptop I get "conected to skybroadband" but after a minute or two, it says "no conection" then I have to unplug the netgear WG111v2 adapter wait a couple of seconds plug it back in and it`ll work perfect till the next time I switch on the laptop again,
my daughter has the same problem but she has a built-in wireless adapter, so she has to unplug her router and reboot her laptop.

Re: Wireless problem
Sounds like the UPnP bug that's a "feature" of the Sky/Netgear router.
In the address bar of your browser (IE) type 192.168.0.1 and a login box for the router should appear. Type admin and the password sky .
You should then see the Netgear router setup program -- find UPNP and turn it off. Then Log Out of the router and close your connection.
Try to connect again and you should have no problem. If you still have a problem turn the router off for a minute and then on again.
If that doesn't do it probably your wireless signal is at the limits of its range or clashing with a neighbour's signal on the same or adjacent channels.
