Hello.My parents have SKY,which entitles them to free upto 2mb BB.

I tried to contact SKY this morning ,but was on hold for an hour+.So I thought maybe the forum users who have SKY could assist with a few questions please.

1'Is the hardware supplied a modem or wireless router?.Can you choose which?

2'If its a router ,can it like all routers be hardwired to the main PC?.

3'Can the wireless function be switched off like with my NETGEAR router?.

Thank you for your help.
Cheers

Answers below;

1 - Usually a Wireless Router, no choice they just send you a Netgear DG834GT

2 - Yes it can

3 - Yes it can once you enter the Management setup for the router, they come with all the settings preset so it can just be plugged in (although the ssid's are preset I usually reset these as well as the security.

Hope this helps.
