How to Install a Belkin Router on a Sky Broadband Connection
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.
- Install a Belkin router to your Sky Broadband service to create a wireless network in your home or office.
Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" networking port on the input panel of the Sky modem.
Connect the other side of the cable into the "Internet" port on the modem. Unplug the power supply from the modem.
Plug the power supply back into the modem to reinitialize the hardware and establish a connection with the router.
Insert the router's power supply cable into the port on the rear of the Belkin router and plug the other end into a nearby power outlet.
Insert the software CD that came with the router into the disc drive on your computer and connect your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router with an Ethernet cable. Click "Next" in the set-up wizard that appears. Create a wireless name for the router and a wireless password to join the router's network. Click "Apply" to save the changes and finish installing the router.
