Hi WILLA1981

 

Great to see your 1st Sky Forum post

 

Did your old laptop connect before to the wireless connection?

 

Can you connect to the Broadband using the Ethernet cable? 

 

Thanks

Im having a similar problem, i used to be able to connect to my wireless network at will, then it stoped allowing me, ive done a factory restart, and can connect via ethernet cable, but it still wont let me connect to the net. 

 

It connects Local Only, and despite my dianosing it, still wont connect to the net.

 

Any ideas?
