Hi 

 

 

 

I have just upgraded (on order) my sky box to one with built in wi-fi.

 

This is due to sky link having some issues with my wi-fi and or modem

 

I think sky said it was a Kanon box with built in wi-fi.

 

In a perfect world I would hard wire my wi-fi to sky but this does not work.

 

 

 

So does anyone know about these boxes and how well they work ?

 

 

 

Thanks

So being picky, hard wired wifi isn't a thing. Wifi is wireless, otherwise it's just network.

More importantly, unless there is a wiring issue (which would be totally fixable) I don't see how wifi can connect any better, or infact differently, than a wired connection.

My question is around the sky box with built in Wi-Fi and how good or bad they are ?
Thanks

You're getting an upgrade. The Kaon box is faster but is still running the same software as the older Pace box. The built-in WiFi is a bit easier to deal with than the external WiFi dongle used on the Pace.
