I would like to change the security on our Sky Broadband system from WEP to WPA/WPA2. How can I do this, please?

Hard to advise when you don't say which router you have click here

By default your Sky Router is set to WPA and the default WiFi Password is printed on a label on the base of the router.

You can change the WPA to WEP (but it's not sensible to do so).

To see what your settings are you need to enter the Routers set up page - you do this by entering the following address in your Browser (IE, Firefox etc):

192.168.0.1

After pressing Enter the screen will open to the Routers Set Up Page. It will ask for a User name and Password. By default these are admin / sky .

Then chose Wireless from the top of the left hand column. You will be able to see the type of Encryption in the middle column. This should be WPA-PSK and if it isn't just change the setting.

Don't forget to SAVE any changes you make!
