    When I go into network settings on the open box and scroll over to wifi, the wifi manager is grey, and I cannot access it to put in my internet settings.
    I am using a Sky wifi extender plugged into the open box and on the wifi extender just the power light is on,When I put it back into the sky box wifi comes back on.
    Do you think it is the sky wifi extender that is the problem? :( I cannot use an ethernet cable,the router is upstairs

    Wifi extenders will always cause issues sooner or later, why dont you purchase some powerline adapters, they work wonders!!!!!

    Just use a simple skybox/openbox wifi dongle. Under a fiver on the bay.

    If i remember correctly, i had the same problem when first setting up, but a reboot gave me the set up option :)

    EDIT: Reboot with the dongle plugged in the openbox.
