Go to search engine "Google etc" and type in wireless usb stick. this is the easiest way to get a wireless connection on a PC. The ram is another kettle of fish,,it has to be matched ,,so it is usually advisable to remove one chip and go to your local computer store and buy what you need, based on the example you provide.

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.
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).
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.
The BT Vision v-box has an additional scart socket, which can be connected to a video or dvd recorder.
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. EDIMAX Technology Official Website Wireless Routers 300Mbps Wireless...
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,
I am a person who work for BT in the tech help desk dept. if you have any trouble in doing this please reply to this message
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.
Just add an identical stick in the slot next to it then you have 2x512mb, find your motherboard model to see what type of ram it takes as WO00980373 brings upno answer it may be ddr or ddr2 ram and you must get the right speed eg 400mhz 533mhz.BT Home hub is fine ..if it works why replace.
BT is right, the fault is at your end, because you can connect to the Internet with an ethernet cable. You have lost your wireless connection with the wireless hub. This could be low signal strength (especially if the wireless access point is in one part of the house and your laptop is in another room) OR Your laptop wireless card has lost its wireless access configuration. Check your laptop wireless configuration, check your signal strength, check your SSID, check your security (WEP or WAP), Have you got MAC address filtering. Go to control panel, click on network connections, right click on Wireless Network, Click on repair (might fix your connection problem), Else right click on Status (should give you indication of how your wireless is functioning or not functioning). Check your TCP/IP settings is set for "Obtain an IP address automatically" Without more information it is difficult to identify exactly what is wrong with your connection.
Yes, you are able to connect your 360 using a hardwired connection. In fact, it is even faster that way!
Your BT Home Hub has two ethernet jacks on it, for use with whatever devices you wish to connect to the internet (in this case, your 360). Simply plug your 360's ethernet cable into the jack, and voila! You can now access Live. However, if you wish to host games over live, you may need to open up certain ports for Live to use.
