Sky Broadband Connects for a few seconds and then goes,rarely to return

Hi.
My girlfriend has SKy Broadband.She was advised to remove all antivirus which she has done.I can use my laptop wirelessly off the same sky box without any problem and when I've called Sky in the past they tell me it is connected their end.They have sent numerous Sky boxes and still the problem persists.When on the rare occassions it does connect, it only stays connected for a miute or so before cutting off.

Any ideas?I'm not particularly computer savvy so if you can make the explanation as simple as possible I would greatly appreciate it.
Regards,

Tony

    Hi.



    Thanks for the suggestion.However, when I look up internet protocol properties on my laptop, all entries are blank so therefore I can't alter my girlfriend's computer accordingly.



    Any ideas?



    Regards,



    Tony

Use "free" Sky broadband setup disk to automate and save username, password, network connection, LAN/wireless properties, MAC, IP, subnet, gateway, etc on her computer, exactly as your own working system. Change her computer's IP address last digit next available number up or down: yours 192.168.1.1, hers 192.168.1.2 etc.

What is my e.mail


Hi there
When you signed up to Sky they should have given you an email address. Alternatively they may have just given you a Username or Sky ID, in which case your email address will be this Username or Sky ID followed by "@sky.com"
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Problem setting up sky broadband on windowsw xp professional


Hi Robert,
Are you aware that Windows XP will no longer be supported by Microsoft after April 2014 and will then be open to hackers worldwide, it is highly recommended to upgrade to Windows 7 on all PCs and devices. Could be Sky are ahead of the game and have already dropped XP.

I've got a goodmans tvc202ts with no remote can i still tune it in and how? or can i tune it in if i set up my sky remote?


Hi, if you connect your sky box to the TV by SCART the TV will automatically switch to aux so you can watch sky that way. The same goes for DVD players, digiboxes etc, but not anything that connects with component video like my Playstation :(

Hello.

If you have a router, check the physical connections to the router and reset the router. If still a problem, the router could be faulty.

Contact Sky Broadband for them to check their connection.

Hope this helps.

How do i configure my Belkin router to work with Sky broadband?


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.
