OK, so attempts today, so for clarity this is the logon page i am trying to get past -hope the image below is shown.
the only password that does not generate an "incorrect password" is when I type "sky" as the password. I have tried the BTbtoadhand network and admin password but to no avail.
I am still connecting directly to a laptop via Ethernet, as advised by an earlier post not to use WPS. At the moment i do do get to see a list of networks
this page is displayed after i type "skywirelessbooster.local" in the address bar
You should not be seeing this Login prompt.
Have you switched of WiFi on your laptop ?
Note this comment from the setup manual.
"Ensure that the green and amber lights on the back of your Wireless Booster are on or flashing. If neither green or amber lights are on, please turn off the Wi-Fi on your computer/laptop."
What you are trying to do here is to get the Wireless Booster to connect wirelessly to your BT Home Hub. It is the Wireless Booster that should see the wireless networks.
What appears to be happening is that your laptop is connecting to the Wireless Booster wirelessly. This should not happen at this point.
Other posts in the Sky Community indicate that for some reason you cannot use Internet Explorer (try Google Chrome) to do this setup and also that others needed to temporarily switch off their Laptops Firewall
