      I presume the Aldi 8833 is a PC?

      On the back of the PC there should be a hole that the yellow cable which came with the Sky router will plug into.

      All you should theoretically need to do is plug the router into the phone socket and then the yellow cable from the router plugs into the back of the Aldi 8833.

      No need to use any CD that came with the router and it should hopefully just connect to the internet once you click on the Internet Explorer icon.

      yeh the first posting sounded like somebody was trying to set up a wifi hotspot inside local aldi supermarket

      Looks like the ethernet port is to the side of the top pair of USB ports. More info here.

      As advised, it is best to start with a wired connection before trying to set up wireless. To be honest, it's best to stay wired if possible but if wireless is needed you'll find plenty of info in the wireless forum on how to set it up. If you call Sky I doubt they'll help as you are not using their wireless dongle.

      You may be unlucky enough to have AOhell preinstalled on your PC. This is one of the little 'extras' included on recent UK Medions. If you have, remove it!!! I am not sure how this is done, but have a look in Start>Control Panel>Programs and features, see if it is listed there. If it is click Uninstall on the top bar.

      When you have done that go to the Control Panel>Network and Sharing Centre and click the 'Customize' link in the top right pane. Select 'Private Network' click next and follow the wizard. Then check under Sharing and Discovery that at least Network Discovery is switched ON. The remainder of the items can be set later.

      Now go to the Left pane and click 'Manage Network Connections' When the pane opens right click the Icon for your ethernet connection (it is probably labelled Intel) and highlight 'Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) Click the Properties button and on the next pane make sure that 'Obtain an IP address automatically' is selected, the same for DNS servers. Repeat this with the Wireless icon. Be careful when you highlight the protocols that you do not untick them by mistake. Click OK back to your Desktop.

      Now plug the yellow cable into the ethernet port and one of the ports on the router and plug the other router cable into the phone socket, preferably the Master, power up the router and it should find the PC. Open a browser and you should be online.

      EDIT. I meant to add, you will have a 90 day trial of Bullguard preinstalled, so do not install Mcaffee or any other AV for the time being.
