      Thanks for all of your comments. It looks like I have finally got to the bottom of the problem.

      The router has finally died! It does not light up at all now after a spell of looking like the Blackpool illuminations with everything flashing! Luckily, I have borrowed my mother-in-laws old Netgear V1 router when she was with Sky which is up to date with software and is working perfectly with the HomePlugs.

      Sky are sending me a brand new router (for nothing) which I trust will work as intended.

      Hello mgc2504,

      I'm glad that you found the 'Router' of your problem and all seems to be working well once more. Sky o replace faulty routers FoC, but you will normally need to return the faulty one.

      As an alternative solution for the future, should someone else experience problems, a friend of mine has put me in touch with a different solution which I would like to share with you.

      The "Comtrend Powerline Ethernet Adapter". A quick search on Google will find a number of places where you can purchase a pair. Prices today were between 45 and 50, but I suspect the eBay and other sources will have competitive prices.

      I've had no issues with this product myself.

      They are quick and simple to use. Should you wish to add more than the basic 2 units to your home network, there are various pages on the web to help you with this as there is no manual included with them. The instructions are actually very easy to follow. One involved editing the internal settings via a web interface, the 2nd (and much easier) involved pressing the right buttons on the two units to sync them together.



      Personally I prefer a wired network for speed, reduced errors and security. WiFi does reduce the clutter of wires in the home though. This solution increases portability of a Wired LAN without the inconvenience of tacking network cables all over your home as you can use virtually any electrical socket in your home.

      Yours,
      Scubbie
