Welcome to our Forum
Did you use your Sky router for broadband down the 'phone line? If so you'll find you're trying to connect an ADSL modem/router to a fibre modem, which won't work.
Ideally you should use a stand alone wireless router (with no modem). If you don't already have one a search on the Internet should reveal a recommended brand at a realistic price.
You can still enable modem mode without a router connected but you'll only be able to connect a single device (pc or laptop) to the Hub via Ethernet. A new WAN IP will be assigned to whichever device is connected.
