Is that not your Sky isp code for the connection and it's the network security key you need, normally printed on the router.

Ive just bought a brand new dell lap top i connected it to my fathers sky broadband its connected but browser wont open?


By browser not opening, are you saying that you click on it and nothing happens? If it is saying cannot connect, then it is a network issue and not necessarily a browser issue. Under the Help and Support section of your computer you should find a network troubleshooter guide

How can i connect my desktop computer to the internet plz i need someone to help


Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)

My new computer will not connect to my sky wireless router it keeps asking me for a pass phrase that the network provider will issue me with


Hi ! When you recieved the sky router it would have come with a small card the size of a credit card with the "NETWORK KEY" on it.

It should also be on a sticker on the bottom of the router it will look something like this: AXUGACXW

enter this as the passphrase and providing nothing has been changed it should allow you access.

If this wont work, follow the instructions to reset the router to factory defaults (small button at the rear, hold in for 5 seconds or so and then release) lights should flash and it will then allow you to connect using the default network key, bear in mind though you will need to reconnect each pc that is currently connected.

I have recently aquired a router and a Wireless PCI Card. Although I am automatically on the internet when I boot up my Computer,I keep getting a message on screen that I have limited or no conectivity....


the limited connectivity means that your router is not connected wirelessly probably because you have not entered the correct passkey, or it's still giving your lan RJ45 network cable the ip address and this is why you are still connected to the net.

If you are on a Netgear modem/router as i suppose you are if it's from sky, you should connect the RJ11 phone line cable into the router leading to a broadband filter, then connect the filter to your phone socket.

There should be no wires between your pc and the router, so take out the wire that is connected to the router (RJ45), which you should have used to set the router up coming from your onboard wired network card.

You will now be connected only via wireless connection, right click on the wireless network icon in your taskbar, click show all connections and then click on your SKY****, whatever it is and then you will need to enter the WPA-PSK security passkey which is with your Sky paperwork or on the router itself.

Can not connect to internet on wireless acer laptop 5315. it says the settings saved on this computer for network do not match the requirements for the network


Your security key has perhaps changed.

You will need to check this key entered into your laptop against what is entered into the router.
