What range does the Sky wireless adapter have?

Because the sky wireless adapter is a receiver rather than a transmitter, it does not have any specific range. As long as the wireless adapter can receive a WiFi signal from your home network, it should be able to connect. Models SD501 and SC201 both have wireless network connection status lights to indicate whether the device is currently connected to a network. If the device is connected, the wireless indicator will be lit with a solid white light. If the device is not connected, the wireless indicator light will not be illuminated.

How do you connect to a wireless network?

You can enter the wireless network password by using your sky remote. If your password contains non-alphanumeric characters, press 0 to access the special character menu. Sky wireless connectors also support wireless protected setup if your broadband router has a WPS button. To connect via WPS, first press the WPS button on your router, then press the WPS button on your Sky wireless connector. The wireless indicator light will flash amber whilst connecting with your network, and will turn white once connected.
