I Have the same problem, what should be a very straight forward procedure is not possible and the web page cannot be found?

Do sky supply a new router with a WPS button if it is not possible to connect?

Hi AD53,

 

It's not so good to see that you're not able to connect your booster to you router. To help you get this connected, can you please tell me if you've followed these steps

 

Speak to you soon.

Re: Re Cannot connect the Sky wireless booster using an Apple MacBook Pro following the instructions

Hi AD53,

 

Could you confirm that the Booster is connected to your Apple MacBook Pro using an Ethernet cable?

 

Could you also confirm the Booster power light is solid white?

 

Also have you tried moving the Booster closer to the Router while setting up?

 

Thanks,

Re: Re Cannot connect the Sky wireless booster using an Apple MacBook Pro following the instructions

Can confirm that it is connected by the cable, power is solid white and the booster is 10 feet away from the router. Also our Internet speed is very slow.
