Sky Broadband

hi This is a query for my bless but she is so not computer literate and im working away from home so i cant go round and sort it out.
She has just had her sky surf talk see package turned on. She has a wireless modem and a laptop which has wifi enabled. Can she use the laptop on wifi without the modem being conected to the laptop?
Does anybody know which wireless utility sky broadband uses as i was trying toget her to search for available wifi connections to add but the message windows cannot config due to using another programme to do this ... any ideas?
Many Thanks

Does she only have the one computer? If so she will need to plug it into the modem/router for the initial setup. This is so it can be configured and the modem can log onto Sky's network.
After that she can go wireless. It will probably be called SKY###### or some thing similar.

If she puts in to disc that came with her modem it will run though it with her.

HTH, Tony

My Sky broadband uses a Netgear router.
