I thought Sky Only did wireless routers?

If you havent got a wireless router from Sky Give them a ring, there should be no reason they wouldn't upgrade your old SKY Router to a Wireless one.

The ipod touch is wireless capable it doesn't need a dongle you can jump on any wireless open network with it.

Your not being very clear..

Have you got a Sky Wireless Router...... it should be white and have a little antenna poking out the back.

If you do have a Sky Wireless Router then providing you havent changed the Network Password, it should be on the back/bottom of the router in capitals. Not your Sky Account Password.

im new to all this wireless stuff
guy from sky said i have all the latest stuff
#8
no its black with no antena
#9
yeah ive noticed that doesnt accept the password

Ahah! I am there now... you have the free package which doesn't have a wireless router
#11
my touch finds my bt homehub no problem-I had to put the ssid(think thats what you call it) in the first time I connected but now it connects automatically everytime.
#12
many thanks i will get back in touch with them
#13
You need a new router - Your looking at about £40 form your local PC World / Curry's, but if you ring them up you might get one cheaper over the phone through Sky.
#14
erm my sky wireless router is BLACK with NO antenna so possibly doesnt need new router

I think the next package up from sky is £5 a month and you get the wireless router, higher speeds etc.
#16
I thought they were still passing out the Netgear White Routers.

What model number is your router? Is it a Sagem one? Think they did some sagem ones that were wireless
#17
just phoned sky again they again said i had the latest model & that i would need to get a wireless dongle from either currys /comet

The dongle is USB so will only go in a PC / laptop. Even so it wont help.

They are fobbing you off!
#22
The password could be case sensitive? :-D

i have exact same but mine is labled SAGEM,yet you say yours is NETGEAR?
should be as simple as putting your "network key" in capitals thats on the label underneath unless its a compatability issue

Nintendo DS's dont/didnt connect to these
#24
Do you have anything else that connects wirelessly to this? As it will be the same settings as that.
I have a feeling you may have MAC address filtering set to on, which may be why you cannot connect - unless of course you are not putting in the right details for the wireless network.

unplug the router and plug it back in, I had a problem with a Wii that wouldn't connect to a Sky Router for love nor money recently.

Unplugged the router for 3mins plugged it back in and it worked.

Can you see your network when searching on your iPod?



WAIT had a thought..

You may have the router locked as in you will need to tell it there is a new device that needs adding.

you need to log into the router..

in the address bar in your browser on your PC type in 192.168.0.1

you should see a box that asks for Name and Password...

Name is 'Sky' Password is 'Password'

should see a main portal page, left hand side should be 'attached devices'

you need to add the Touch as a New Device
