Question about Routers
I have just signed up to Sky broadband and my line will be active in a couple of days. I don't wish to use the Sky router as I have a brand new Belkin wireless network. Anyone know how I can make the Belkin work with Sky?
Sky have conceded I can use other routers with their service, but then oddly add that they canot tell me what the settings are?!
Follow the below steps to setup sky broadband network:

I'm not into hacking what I cannot find on ISP's sites
From what I can gather from the Sky Broadband site reading the manual installation procedures -- the process is pretty much automatic when it comes to installing their equipment leaving no clues as to how they configure it. What is the model if the Belkin router? Options probably exist to attach your device to theirs either as a router (establishing a second network behind theirs) or an access point joining as a member of their network - meaning there would would be two wireless networks in either case in the house (as there are no indications I have found on the site that the provided the sky router can be configured in any way such as turning off wireless). At least according to the documentation the sky router's wireless is running WPA-PSK security / encryption which is good -- and the documentation for attaching non-sky wireless adapters appears to be documented here.
