Since your phone connects to Facebook, you have valid Facebook account.
So - does the computer access the internet OK, If so then it would appear to be a username/password, firewall or anti-vrus software issue.
Does your phone connect to Facebook over a WiFi internet connection - eg from your BT HomeHub or other router, or via mobile Broadband (3g - 4g). If its via a WiFi connection/router then you need to check that the phone adn computer Wifi settings are the same.
There is no extra charge for wifi if you have BT broadband.
You need to ensure that the wireless network settings on the router and on the laptop coincide otherwise you will not be able to connect.
The security settings are usually somewhere on the Home Hub, a label on the bottom, a slide-out plastic tab on the top, a card that came with the router, depending upon the model of Home Hub.
Getting these right however will not help unless the network settings are also correct. Changing these varies according to your OS, the details I give below are for Win7.
Go to Control Panel, Network and Internet, Network and sharing centre. On the right of the box is a "Change adapter settings". Go to this and it will show your networking hardware. Click on the wireless adaptor, and then the "Properties" button. Highlight the "Internet Protocol Version 4" and click on the "properties" button. Check that there are dots in the "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically". If these are not click on the dot so that the little circle is filled with a dot. Back out of all the dialogue boxes by clicking on the "OK" button, close the network adapter page and try reconnecting.
If both the above have been done correctly you will now have wireless access to the HomeHub and hence the Internet. Do be aware however that distance from the HomeHub and intervening objects (esp metal ones) can have a dramatic effect on the signal strength achievable from the HomeHub, so that setting up should always be done from within 10 feet of uninterrupted space.
A bit involved but I hope this helps.
Have you tried going to device manager in the control panel find your wireless adapter driver and click on update driver? hopefully this will then find a driver update if not you could try the manufacturers web site for the latest driver.
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.
looks like your router config URL is
try digging around in there to find/change your password and to see how your wireless is configured. I can't give you more detail, I have never had any experience with HomeHubs... you may wanna read through your homeHub manual (the wireless section or whatever).
ah those British beople always have to do everyhing their own way... lol.
sorry I couldn't be more help. good luck.
If you want to disables Vista’s FIREWALL then you need to go into your WindowsSecurityCenter (you can easily turn ‘off’ the firewall from there).
Click Start and click Control Panel.
Click Security and then select Windows Firewall.
Click Change Settings.
From the window that appears, click the Advanced tab.
Remove the check beside the connection that you want to disable the Windows Firewall for.
