Hi. We are trying to setup a phillips tv through a bt vision box please


  1. A TV aerial feed - The BT Vision box gets its digital TV signals over-the-air, so needs a TV aerial. This needs to be connected to the aerial input socket on the V-Box. There is an output RF aerial socket to allow you to connect an aerial feed to a TV if required.
  2. SCART lead - You need to make a connection from the Vision+ box to the TV using a SCART lead. If you have a HD TV set, you can also connect via an HDMI lead (not supplied).
  3. Connection to Broadband - You'll need to connect from the BT Vision+ box to a BT Broadband connection. This is done using the BT Home Hub. The Home Hub is the Broadband router supplied by BT, and it connects into to your phone line to give you Internet access-The most common way to make the connection, is to connect an Ethernet (networking) cable from the BT Vision+ box to one of the Ethernet ports on the Home Hub. If you can't make a direct connecting to the Home Hub, you can use powerline adapters to make the connection. The self-install kit includes two Powerline adapters to allow you to connect to the Home Hub if it's in a different room to the BT Vision+ Box.
  4. The BT Vision v-box has an additional scart socket, which can be connected to a video or dvd recorder.

Associate wireless router to my home hub


If your Home Hub is a BT type internet hub, then you can connect the WAN port to the Ethernet port on the Hub.

This means it will go through two routers. One in the Hub and another in the Edimax. The Edimax needs to be configured as a bridge, because you need to keep within the same address range as the BT router. The Edimax DHCP allocation of IP addresses need to be disabled. This is not on the web site.

How do I access the internet using a BT home hub set up for wireless operation, without having to go through BTfon


Hi Graham
This should be fairly straight forward.
Your BT Home hub should be transmitting 2 signals. One called BTfon and another called something like BTHomeHub2-PGD3.
The second is what your computer should be connecting to to access the internet. If you look at the back of your home hub you will see 4 rows of numbers/text.
One should say SSID and have have the same ending as the transmitter that your computer should be seeing. Underneath that it should say WEP code or WPA. (or something similar) What follows is the password you need to enter to access that home hub's internet transmitter. The BTfon thing is for the telephone that comes with some versions of the hub - it's not for the computer.

My printer has stopped communicating with our BT home hub It was OK and the security code is correct it just cannot establish a connection. I tried it with the previous Netgear wi fi and it connects just...


you can also change the BT home hub 2.0(black)encryption type to WEP type. all you need to do is follow the steps to change the type of encryption to WEP.

  • connect a computer using the ethernet cable to the hub(its the black cable with yellow leads).
  • open an internet explorer or anyother browser, in the address bar just type 192.168.1.254.
  • you will be getting the BT home hub manager page with please reset your password, asking for three credentials.
  • in the first bar enter the default admin password or the admin password which is found in the wireless card or at the back of the home hub in the label. in the second and third bars enter the password of your own, something like admin1.
  • you will be getting another page coming with four options at the top (home, services, settings and troubleshooting).
  • click on settings, and below troubleshooting in the blue bar itself , you will see advanced settings. click on it.
  • then click on continue to advanced settings, now below home in the blue bar itself, click on wireless.
  • after you do that, you will see two options called as configuration and security. click on security. there you will see the option to change the wireless encryption to WEP.after changing the type to WEP, type the same password again in the section for password and click on apply to save changes.
  • check whether your printer is connecting to your home hub after that,

Can I connect my HP PSC1510 to my BT Homehub v1?


yes, you can. I have my printer connect to my hub and my desktop and I can print from my laptop wirelessly.
You will need your all in one connected via a printer or USB cable to a computer AND also connected to your hub. Then, go to the computer that is connected through a cable to the all in one. Your all in one should have some way to configure its IP address. I have my printer configured as 192.168.1.4 and it's plugged into the 4th port of my hub. Check if this works.

Iv got a BT home hub 2 cant get conections for utorrent even though opened firewalls


There are ISPs that block utorrent. I found this explanation of how to do port forwarding on the BT home hub, though: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/BT/BTHomeHub/Utorrent.htm
So, all I can suggest is to open the ports on your home hub as suggested above and to connect your computer straight to your home hub rather than to your CWR-854 (unless you actually have no such router and just picked that to ask the question under).
It is possible that someone has decided that you should not use torrents (they slow down everyone because they actually have the nerve to use the internet) and they are associated with thieves. Not to mention that there are tons of legit uses for them,
This could be someone in your ISP or your house. So do you have access to everything? You can poke around with telnet - can you access the ports on the other systems that utorrent accesses to make itself part of the network of systems that are downloading and sharing the torrent?
But if one knows the ports it is easy to block torrent.
If you have multiple routers that do nat, the home hub has to forward to your router, not to your system. So if your router is 192.168.3.12 and your system is 192.168.5.6, the BT home hub has to forward to the port on your router, on 192.168.3.12 , and your router has to forward to your system on 192.168.5.6. If the home hub tries to forward directly to your system (if you have multiple routers, which you might have because of the way you asked your question) then it won't work since your router hides 192.168.5.6.

Ive got a 40gb ps3 and a bt home hub wireless router how do i connect ps3 to computer ps ps3 is upstairs and pc downstairs


look on the back of your home hub. there should be a Wireless Key in a Grey box. (BT Home Hub wireless settings)

note the wireless key.

go to your ps3. and turn it on log on ect. go to settings and down to network settings (right at bottom).

(Im not sure of the next section because im currently on a network but it should be an option to find network).

anyway you search for networks. should find your home hub.

keep going right untill you have to enter any settings. and write your WEP Key (Not WKA). (wireless key from back of router).
