Install a Belkin router to your Sky Broadband service to create a wireless network in your home or office. Routers spread the Internet connection from your Internet Service Provider so Wi-Fi-enabled devices can wirelessly join a network. While routers may seem complex, the installation process is actually quite straightforward and can be performed in just a few minutes. Belkin routers are preconfigured so they can begin sending out a wireless signal as soon as the connection is established.
