NO BROADBAND CONNECTION DETECTED
The router has failed to dectect a broadband connection.
 
That's what the router page says

The sky router should be pre-configured for WiFi it doesn't need to be altered. Just plug it in following the instructions and put the WiFi key in your laptop/phone.

WPA2-PSK (AES) is the most secure of those options.

As long as your various devices can work with that, use it.

login to the router and get the statistics, something like these below.

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 17983 kbps 970 kbps
Line Attenuation 15.5 dB 8.4 dB
Noise Margin 9.2 dB 8.0 dB

Don't unplug the router for the next 10 days. Sky connections start slow and gradually increase in speed.
