I would just like to say that I am really pleased so far with my changeover from Plusnet to SKy. I was activated yesterday, and all went very smoothly. My router arrived a couple of days before the switchover and I was able to set it up very easily. I wasn't sure when I should set up the new router but around 2pm my old broadband stopped working, so I set up the router at that time and got instant access. I didn't even notice the changeover of the phone line but I must assume that I now have a Sky line.
Broadband speeds are a bit variable at the moment and a couple of times I have had a few seconds of no connectivity but already the connection seems much smoother than my Plusnet service and I am looking forward to getting Anytime plus set up.
Only problem at the moment is that one of our computers (out of three) just won't set up wirelessly, it runs wired but cannot get it to run wirelessly even though it is showing excellent connection to Sky broadband. It is a windows xp computer and if anyone has any ideas what I might do to get it running wirelessly, I would be very grateful.

What happens when you try to connect it to the sky signal it finds ?

When I go into internet explorer it says IE cannot display the webpage, but the network connection shows a strong signal from the sky connection. The sky connection says a local network cable is unplugged.

Forget about IE for a minute. In the Network Connection bit, what happens here when you press the Conect button to connect to your wireless connection ?

In the Network connecter, it is showing a strong connection to the Sky router. If I disconnect and reconnect again then it immediately connects up to the Sky network. Is this what you are asking?

You mention you disconnect and reconnect again, when reconnecting are you being asked to type in the Network Key which can be found on the bottom of the router?
On this laptop, are you able to connect using an ethernet cable?

Nice to catch your 1st post on the Sky Forum
On the day of the activation it can take upto 12 midnight for the service to become active.
Have you set up the Router yet , as you will see the internet light change to green once its active also.

Hi my had Sky broadband with no issues then I moved house and had to disconnect for two weeks, no worries. My activation date was today and I have everything hooked up (latest Sagem router), but there is no access, and thats ok too as I know it can take up until Midnight, but the green @ symbol is not even lit green or red, its just not on at all. If there was no access I would expect it to be red and I would just wait for it to green, but not even lit?
I have checked the cabling, its all fine, phone line is fine. Can anyone help with this?
