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

I have a Packard bell laptop that will not connect to my wireless router. The laptop will context to my work wireless but not my home wireless. We have another two laptops in the house and both of them...


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key) To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I have an Acer 5520, using Empowerment Technology, running on windows vista, it can connect to my sky broadband, but then the broad won't connect on to the internet.


the obvious is restart the laptop, but alternatively what you can do is try and find an updated driver. to find out what driver you currently have and who makes it right click my computer and go to manage, then click device manager.

the driver your looking for should be under networking it should have something like "WLAN" the other should have "LAN" once you've found out who makes it go to their website download the latest driver and install test again.

I have a acer notepad computer. My father has Sky broadband. He has given me the sattelite password but it tells me its wrong. Can you take me through the process please/


Hello,

right so i take it you know how to put the WIFI key in.

look on the back of the router it will tell you what the WIFI key is if he has changed it himself type in your web browser:

192.168.0.1

Then it will prompt you for a username and password
username : admin
password : sky

click on the setup tab scroll down and you will see WPA-PSK security encryption underneath it will show you what the key is to connect to the router, also make sure your connecting to the right router on the same page if you scroll to the top it will show wireless network and underneath it will show you the name of your router for example : Home

Hope this helps.

How do I connect my sky broadband to a second laptop which I have just purhased


are you trying to connect wireless or cabled?
Wireless should be easy, just turn on the wireless device (if its built in) normally by pressing a Fn key and an F key marked with an antenna picture. Then connect to you Sky router after the wireless scan (the number and network key are printed on your router base)
You should just be able to plug an RJ45 network lead into your laptop and it should use DCHP to work (Plug and play).
