Hi Caroline+-+kent,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the Sky Help Forum.

 

If this router does not have a WPS button then you will not be able to use WPS set up. 

 

You can however find your network name and password, located on the sticker on the router. Once you have these details, consult the manual for your printer on how to input these settings.

 

Thanks,

I can enter my details to set up manually, but since the ipad has neither a disc drive or USB point, this is impossible.
It appears I'm going to have to spend most of this months Disability benefit, purchasing your upgraded router. Which I have just noticed has just doubled in price! So thank you Sky!! Especially as we have our broadband, phone & full tv package with you!

I look forward to sky's response, but quite honestly I'm thinking ill be much better off using other providers after this!

Hi Ty+Isaf,

 

Welcome to our forum :smileyhappy:

 

Our newer routers have the WPS buttons on them however older ones will support devices such as wireless printers.

 

As we are unable to offer support on setting up 3rd party equipment to Sky routers, this information should be in the user manual or maybe one of our members could assist you with this.

 

Thanks.
