    the system using the power lines seems to be best.
    Totally agree with what Clive suggested -- Possibly the Wrong password.

    If the powerlines have wireless, connect by Cable and that will solve the wireless problem.

    Or if you have to have Wireless, connect a laptop to the Wireless powerline Via Ethernet cable, look and see what the details actually are or change the SSID to something more noticeable (mines really original -- Lounge) then enter in your own password, save the settings and then the wireless should show and connect.

    Just thinking about this, adding in, "IF" the the wireless SSID and password are Correct and its still not connecting there is a possibility the Security is to High in the wireless for the Sky Decoder, or some devices wont accept passwords if the are to long. Simple test for that, reduce the password length in the wireless settings, try again.

    Some devices wont accept higher Security, if this is the case an easy way to test is disable the wireless security completely, see if it connects, if it does, increase the security one range at a time till it fails to connect, then go back 1 step.

    Thanks for the advice, I have tried again on both 2 degrees networks, neither works so I am no further ahead. Mine is 2 degrees, but I am not sure which of the two it is. The password that I am using is the "WLAN Network Key (WPA2)" provided with and on the label on the FritzBox 7490, It has been used before to successfully connect I pads and smart phones. It is 20 numerical digits long. To put numbers in you have to cycle through Caps before getting a number, so it is quite difficult to get right, but I am fairly confident that I have it correct.

    Real Simple test -- try some other device that has wireless, stand by the sky Decoder, to make sure both are reading the exact same SSID. Try the other device first, enter in the password, if that connects then try again on the Sky Decoder making sure 100% the password is correct, if it fails then its a good chance the decoder cant handle the security as I mentioned earlier.

    If the other device also doesn't connect with the same error then the password more than likely is incorrect. So what you do is log into the Fritzbox Via Ethernet, look at the Wireless security and see what the actual password is.

    What the above does is tells you where the actual problem is.

    I didn't thought and realized that can be an option, I will try this one too. Hope we get good answers from the experts here.
