I did an Avast scan because my lap top is running slow pages not loading then IE stops working, Avast are telling me to change the password to my own to stop people using my wiffi I guess. Anyway I clicked on the link and the page I need from Sky will not load. I have also typed in the IP number it still wont work. Do I need to change this? What difference will it make if someone next door is using my wifi

 

Thanks

The steps that Sky provide are below;
 
You can change your wireless password to something easier to remember by logging into your router settings.
 
If you’re using a Sky router, follow these steps to change the password.
 
Open a new web browser window.
In the address bar, type 192.168.0.1 and press Enter.
Enter the username admin and password sky in lowercase.
From the Useful settings menu on the right hand side of the screen select Change Wireless Password.
Enter the username admin and password sky in lowercase.
Enter the new wireless password you want to use.
Select Apply to save your new settings.
 
Please note: When you change your wireless password, all wireless devices will be immediately disconnected and you’ll need to reconnect each device again entering the new password.
 
What difference will it make if someone next door is using my wifi

 

 

People piggybacking on your wifi will slow down your internet connection, depending on your user package they can use up your allowance and finally passwords are there to protect you and your personal information and for a better explanation than I can give take a look at the info provided by ack__ here

If you are referring to your thread on the Malware Removal Forums here I would suggest that you send Joe (zep516) a PM in case for some reason he did not receive any email notification of your last reply, include a link to the thread in your PM.
