I recently setup a new router, which works fine with the laptop I used to do this. However other laptops all demand a network key. which I did not note down. Is there anyway this is retrievable?

It should be visible on your router's setup page, under wireless security settings.

Thank you MAJ, but you are way ahead of me. How do I find the router's setup page?

This is the first time I have ever done this and it only worked because of the comprehensive Sky instructions!

Your router will have a setup page with all the settings on it, usually accessed by typing it's address into your browser, something like 192.168.1.1 for example. To find out what yours is go to Start > Run, type in:

CMD

and click OK. Then in the the black box, type:

ipconfig

and click OK. You will see a "Default Gateway" entry, that is the address of your router's setup page. Type that into your browser and you will get a box asking you for a username and password. I think the defaults for Sky are "admin" and "admin" (without the quote marks) click OK and you should see all your router's settings. Look for the Wireless Security settings, your Security Password should be there.

The address might be 192.168.0.1 with a username of "admin" and a password of "sky" (without the quotes), manrow.

The sky router. It could be there:)

MAJ thank you again!

Your last suggestion correctly quoted the username and password!!

  manrow 20:26 22 Jan 2008

Unfortunately no sign of Wireless Security settings nor Security Password?

Look under security, it sometimes gives the encryption key.

  MAJ 21:12 22 Jan 2008

What is the model number of your router, manrow, I'm assuming it's a Netgear something-or-other?

  manrow 22:00 22 Jan 2008

Is it better to delete the installation, and start again recording carefully all passwords etc.?
