      Your dates are exactly the same as mine lol

      The pin code will be for WPS which is part of the Wireless Security. If possible (I haven't connected or looked at my router yet so don't know if it is or isn't) I'd turn the feature off because it is vulnerable to a brute force attack allowing someone to gain access to your network and any WEP/WPA/WPA2 passwords in a short space of time. Of course Sky's router might be updated and safeguarded against such an attack but u never know... I might test it shortly unless someone else here knows?

      Best just to have a secure WPA2 password.

      Yes, as I discovered last night - WPS based routers can be cracked in under two hours, get it turned off.

      Well i got a text from Parcelforce saying router would be delivered today but it's still not turned up. Annoying too as i need to nip to the shops but you can bet your last pound that the minute i leave the house the sodding van will turn up with it! hah!
