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 Sky router is connected to the internet. Please note that the Sky router images may be different from your router at home, but the principle of connecting to the internet is exactly the same.
Step 1: Switch on your Apple device
Switch on your Apple device and select the Settings icon.
Step 2: Select the Wi-Fi option
In the Settings menu, find and select the Wi-Fi option.
Step 3: Make sure Wi-Fi is set to On
If it’s not already, make sure Wi-Fi is set to On.
Step 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 Connect card or the Keep me handy card that came with your Sky router and on the side or bottom of your router.
Unless you've changed it, your wireless network name will be something like “SKY” followed by five numbers. For example SKY 12345.
Step 5: Type in your password
Click on your chosen network and you’ll be asked for a password. Your password can be found on the Connect card or the Keep me handy card that came with your Sky router and on the side or bottom of your router.
Always enter your password in capital letters.
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.

Once you've entered your network key, select join.
Step 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.
