      If you have reset the router and the wireless light is not coming on, the router is faulty. If you have had it for more than a year, Sky will charge for replacing it.

      If the router is being reset properly I would say faulty. Have you accessed the router settings via 192.168.0.1
      user name = admin
      password = sky
      Click on wireless link on left, check it is turned on.

      Thanks for the answers, I have checked that it is turned on, so it looks as if I need a new router, any ideas of the cost?

      I have not seen it officially, but 28 is being quoted by those in the know.

      If your laptop has an 'N' adapter and your router is otherwise OK, I would suggest you get yourself an N class router and connect it to your existing one. This would enable you to get the best out of your laptops wireless adapter. There are several on eBay at a reasonable price.
