Could be a variety of reasons.
Assuming you have not had it working before
Assuming the wifi is broadcasting it SSID
Assuming you have laptop connected by ethernet cable to hub:

Assuming you have XP:

Go to start/control panel/network connections/right click the wireless lan icon and select properties/select wireless connections and delete ALL previous entries.

With Vista go:start globe then

Control Panel\Network and Sharing\Manage Wireless Networks and delete all entries

Now:

press windows key and R
type cmd and enter
type ipconfig and enter
note lower set of figures ie 192.168.0.1
open browser and type in those figures and enter
should now open router firmware
When asked for log in use defaults of admin - admin or admin - password

navigate to wireless security and set encryption to WEP 64bit and create a simple encryption code - save settings

Change broadcast channel to 8

make sure wifi is set to open and not shared

Save all settings, allow hub to reboot and now see what happens

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.

Iphone 3G-S will not connnect to BT Home Hub 2.0


First, Can your 3GS connect on ant other Wi-Fi? If so the issue is specific to configuration on either iPhone or BT Home Hub.
Second, Does BT Home Hub configured for any kind of mac-address security? Check that, if it does either remove it or add the iphone mac-address, you can find the iphone mac address under network setting.
Third, Does Home Hub have limit on number of devices that can connect to it, some do. check that and make sure that you increase the limit or just remove the restriction altogether.
Fourth, IS BT Home Hub Wep enabled? If so the password/key you are entring on your iPhone must be exactlythe same. Or just remove the wep encryption to see if your iphone 3GS can connect.
Fifth, If your old 3G is able to connect to your BT Home Hub, then just make sure you are not FAT fingering the keys and entering a different key.

Wifi connection to BT Home Hub problems


Make sure you do not have any third party software running in your taskbar that deals with wifi connection if your trying to use the windows connection. this is what i do. its better, and more simple. Home Hub does not work well with non BT software. If your not sure, turn any wifi connection software off. i.e if any came with your wifi device. and then click on the start button. and click connect to on the right lower side of the start menu. You can use almost any wifi device with these devices. your best bet would be to let windows try to connect to your home hub. Also are you typing in your WEP key. correctly. How far away from the hub is the wifi device. Is windows wireless zero configuration off in system services. unliekly. but worth a look. I have had a home hub for three years and i have to admit they are a nuisence. The BT Voyager wifi works ver well. just in case there is some kind of incompatibility with your device, i highly doubt it though. Good Luck.
