About this deal

I don't think the original Ethernet connected Sky wi-fi adapter boxes had that function, but I could be wrong. If you’ve got the Sky Q Hub, your router also acts as part of the mesh network, and you get an additional feature: your Mini boxes act as Wi-Fi hotspots, repeating the same network name around your house and improving coverage.

I can't believe it was something so simple, but we didn't think about doing that as terrestial TV was still working on our TV, just not SKY. Follow the on-screen instructions to connect the Wireless Connector to your home’s wireless network.It uses Wi-Fi to pump content around your house from TV box to TV box and can even be used as a mesh Wi-Fi system to ensure you have no dead spots at home. A mesh network means that, in the system, every Sky Q device (main box, Mini boxes and boosters) acts as a booster, but it’s the system that finds the most efficient and fastest way of transmitting data: your Sky Q Mini box in the bedroom, for example, might send its signal to a Sky Q Booster, which then sends it to the main box. However, doing this causes problems, as it breaks down the mesh network and can force Sky Q Mini boxes to connect via 2. The team at Blue Cine Tech is here to make it easier for you to get the most out of your home entertainment. Once connected, the app syncs itself with the information already on the Sky+HD box and then provides a list of the recordings and downloads.

Now, on the nearest Sky Q device that’s correctly configured (the main box or the Booster, most likely), press and hold the WPS button (far right) until the Amber light flashes. Having had issues myself, I can take you through all of the options I’ve tried to get the issue sorted, both that I could take myself and with Sky’s help. network connection to your router acts more as a backup, so a problem with 5GHz means that your boxes can continue streaming; however, in a properly functioning system all streaming should take place over 5GHz.

Go to your main Sky Q box and press and hold the WPS button (far right) until its amber light starts to flash. Your Sky Q Mini box will connect to the network, get an IP address and then it will start up and connect to your main box. Wait two minutes before switching it back on from standby mode by pressing the sky button on your Sky remote. As your Sky+ box has an ethernet port, the ethernet model (SC201) of Connector would probably be appropriate (there's also a USB model, SD501).I’d say to go for a wired connection where you’ve had problems and stick with wireless for Mini boxes that have been working fine. As mentioned, the mini Sky Q boxes are owned by Sky and can only be used with a valid Sky Multiscreen subscription. If you look around the back of your Sky Q box, or your Sky Q Mini boxes, you’ll see that there are Ethernet ports, all blocked off with a little tab that warns you about using them.
