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

Is wifi free with my BT broadband


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.
Cheers

Android tablet not connecting to my bt hub


Delete the connection from your Android device, select your home-hub and enter the password again. If that doesn't work, try restarting both your tablet and your home hub and try again. If you still have no success, changing the type of security the home hub uses can help.

Hi, I have an acer aspire 5535 and I am experiencing problems connecting to my TP-LINK router. After resetting the router and my laptop I can occasionally connect to the internet, however after a period...


Had similar problem with a kindle and BT home hub - had to manually change the wireless channel on the router but couldn't get a channel that worked when the microwave oven kicked in.
I had two kindles and 2 home hubs and came to the conclusion that some devices must be slightly our of calibration and will struggle to connect on certain channels especially if there are near by routers.
In the end I changed my BT router for a Linksys and its been fine since.

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.
