Customer: replied 1 year ago.

it was ok until I recently made sky my broadband and land line provider..

I already had sky tv,and I wanted to upgrade,and this looked the best option. when I try to connect wirelessly my wi-fi comes up top,and I add my correct password,then after a few seconds it says in red "authentication failed" and a BT network takes over and asks my details..

My sky sig

nal reads"strong" but will not remain,and is bumped off by BT.i am sure this is to do with the broad band change..

Thank you. Do you have also a laptop/wireless computer that is currently able to connected via wireless? If so, does it have Windows xp, vista, or 7, 8, or Mac?

Do you know how to check / confirm your wireless / wi-fi password ***** key (it is case-sensitive)?

If you have a windows or mac computer, I can connect remotely to your computer, so that I can retrieve the modem's wireless password ***** through your computer together with you.

When you are available, please reply back at the box below to continue. Thank you,
