Only the new DRX890W & DRX895W are wifi enabled and have a WPS button on the front that helps connection to your router if it also has WPS.

Personally I'd go for an Ethernet cable as wifi is not as stable and connection with a cable will future proof you as Sky seems to be concentrating more and more on giving services via the web.

 

Anyhow if you must use wifi then you can purchase a wifi adaptor from sky or get a 3rd party one from companies such as Edimax etc...
