Hi TREV04UK,

 

If you can see other networks but not your own then it may be that you have turn off the broadcast of the routers display name. To check this please type 192.168.0.1 into the browser of a device already connected. This will take you to the router status page, click the Wireless tab (username admin & password sky), on the new page you should see a section titled Wireless Access Point and in that section a few tick boxes - please ensure Enable Wireless Access Point & Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID) are ticked. And that Wireless Isolation remains unticked. Click the save button at the bottom of the page if you have made any changes.

 

If you then try searching for your network do you see your router?

 

Thanks,
