Higrade 8615gtk. any suggestions to help me connect wifi from our bt home hub. have been trying for days HELP!
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
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
