Do I have to set up a network for my laptop to communicate with the wireless router?

I only have a laptop and just got sky broadband and don't really want to go through the hassle of setting up a network.

I think you will find it necessary to initially connect the laptop to the router via a network cable in order to set-up the router for wireless connectivity. Did you not receive any instructions with the Sky package/router on how to do this?

I had this problem before with AOL. I could not get the wireless working until I set up a network. I tried to connect to Sky this morning but it kept trying to get the network address, which I had typed in correctly.

What did you need to do in the end?

I reset the router and re entered the network key...luck more than judgement!
