Connect an Apple device to your wireless network
It’s quick and easy to connect your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to the internet using your Sky Broadband wireless connection. Before you start, switch on your Apple device and check that your router is connected to the internet.
1. Switch on your Apple device
Switch on your Apple device and tap the Settings icon.
2. Select the Wi-Fi option
In the Settings menu, find and select the Wi-Fi option.
3. Make sure Wi-Fi is set to On
If it’s not already, make sure Wi-Fi is set to On.
4. Choose a Network on your Apple device
A list of available networks will open. Look through this list until you find your wireless network. You can find these on the back or underside of your router and on the Connect card or the Keep me handy card that came in the Sky router box.
Unless you've changed it, your wireless network name will be something like “SKY” followed by five numbers. For example SKY 12345.
5. Type in your password
Select your chosen network and you’ll be asked for a password. You can usually find your wireless details on the back or underside of your router and on the Connect card or the Keep me handy card that came in the Sky router box.
Make sure you always enter your password in capital letters. The password doesn't contain any numbers.
When you type in the password you’ll see a series of dots instead of the letters. Don’t worry, your keyboard isn't broken, this is just for security reasons.
6. Join the network
Once you've entered your network key, tap join.
7. Connection complete
Your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad will now connect to your Sky Broadband network and you’ll see a tick against your highlighted wireless network name.
8. See details of your network
You can tap the arrow against your wireless network to see details of your network connection.
If you're having problems getting online
