Use a lan cable, keep the wifi for the mobiles/tablets/laptops.......hardwire any tv's, Pc's, media boxes.

Mine is connected with the wifi, is there some reason why it's better to use a cable? I'm just curious :)

If streaming, WiFi is by far the most unreliable method to use.

If a Lan lead is not an option then 'Home Plugs' or similar is a good fallback option.

Do all Sky+ HD boxes have wifi? is there a WPS button on the front of the box?

Ok, as I don't even know what 'streaming' is it's safe to say I haven't noticed anything :)

I know my old Sky box did not have wifi option but the new installed about 6 months ago did so they connected it up.

For sky boxes that don't have built-in wifi capability, Sky can provide a connector which allows the box to connect to wifi.

They have offered these for free in the past (especially if you're going to use catch up TV or watch box sets), so might be worth a call to Sky to ask. I got a free connector some years ago, and it worked fine for downloading content from Sky to the box for later viewing.

Have you looked through the network section of the settings menu to see if there is a wireless option? Sky How To video here.
