      Re: Sky Anytime+ Adapter

      I believe that you have a Wireless Extender in that link. This should indeed work.

      Your Sky+ HD STB would need to connect to the Wireless Extender via an Ethernet cable.

      The Extender would then connect to the Sky Router via WiFi.

      For further ideas, please take a look at this thread: http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/askin...e-network.html

      P.S. I've combined your two posts into one thread as they are not 100% the same, but were in different areas. Duplicate posting just upsets members.

      hi - how did you get on with this set up?
      Was it easy or straightforward to do?
      Were the instructions ok?

      But the instructions that came with it are not much help

      But everything seems fine now
