Why can I not change my BT Broadband to another provider. I can change phone but BT will not allow other providere to give me their broaband which has a great saving for me?

BT provide (and own) the telephone line infrastructure for this country, and all providers go through this infrastructure. Some exchanges have proprietary equipment in them belonging to one or other of the various providers which allows them to offer something that BT may not, ut they still have to use the BT lines, which they rent from BT Wholesale division. So if BT won't let them use the lines you are in trouble when it comes to getting Broadband other than BT.
There are options however, firstly try PlusNet, as I believe they are part of BT so may get better treatment than other providers. Secondly there is Satellite Broadband but this can be expensive, especially installation when compared with over the phone. Thirdly mobile 3g or 4g broadband if you have coverage in your area, but speeds are highly reception dependant and if you don't get good mobile phone signals then this option is unlikely to work. Also you would probably have to buy and install a 3g/4g modem router and I'm not dure how expensive these are.
This may not have been a lot of help, except possibly understanding the problem !!

Wifi on laptop

To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Hi, since having a new BT home hub, my inspiron 6400 will not connect wirelessly unless I do a 'repair' with it. Sometimes it detects broadband but wont connect wirelessly. My son changed the channel...

Most people have to just work out the configuration by them selves BT do offer a lot of support (0800 022 33 22) Their equipement is pretty good and widely used.
By the way the most least used channels are 1,6,and 11 there might be a default but these are the most complete channels which do not overlap(RE;
cnannel 1]--2.412 Centre frequency(ghz)
channel 6]--2,437
channel 11]-2.462

I just bought a lap top and want to know how to set up with my home broadband

First you need to decide what type of broadband service you require and these are -
1. DSL which uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable which uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone service and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account
Note - combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and your laptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless network, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.

Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associates additional cost if you exceed the monthly download limits.

Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

Switching from desk top to laptop

You should only have to take out the ethernet wire from the desktop and plug it into the laptop (the one that looks like a big phone cord). However, depending on the connection you may need logon information for the broadband service provider.

Wireless Connection for Notebook

One way or another you will have to download the drivers or get a factory install disc. Once its downloaded, put it on a flash drive or burn it.

Those are really your only options.

Wireless connection problem

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.
