    Probably not. The sky router more than likely has a built in Modem. The modem is what changes a telephone line into a computer connection. The Time Capsule dose not have a modem built in.

    I would suggest turning off the wireless feature of the Sky box and adding the time capsule to the network by a cable from the sky to the time capsule. That way you keep the features from sky.
