    Duncan, thnaks for that. I will give it a go (I think the wireless card is Intel, so I can try downloads from their site). My only concern is that it will cause backwards compatability problems if we have to revert to the previous Homehub.....

Have you tried going to device manager in the control panel find your wireless adapter driver and click on update driver? hopefully this will then find a driver update if not you could try the manufacturers web site for the latest driver.

Have you tried setting the wireless adapter settings to the default? Have you tried uninstalling the wireless adapter and re-installing it? Do you have a home network setup with an encryption key?

SOURCE: lan and wireless driver for toshiba a135-s2246

Unfortunately, the Toshiba Satelite A135-S2246 was never designed to run XP, only Vista. Which is why you can't find any drivers for XP. The nearest you can get is to find a laptop running XP SP2 that is using the same LAN (ethernet controller) and WLAN (wireless ethernet controller), and see if they will work.

Here are the drivers I found for XP (please check which one's you are trying to install):

Atheros WiFi card driver:
http://www.wireless-driver.com/download/atheros/2007-7-23/Atheros-ar5bxb6-AR5424-mini-PCI-E-Wireless-Card-Driver-Download.htm

Intel WiFi card driver:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx
You will need to search for the card that you have.

LAN (ethernet controller):
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=6&PFid=6&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false#1
You can pick third or fourth from top depending on your preference.

Please remember that Toshiba, Microsoft, Atheros, Realtek, Intel and especially myself accept no responsibilty for what may, or may not happen when installing drivers not specifically designed for your system. All that said, I hope it works for you.

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,

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.

BT HomeHub wireless router which cannot connect to the XBox 360


your router may have incorect connection settings. what i mean is that your router may have security on that rejects connecting to adapter. check if the xbox can connect to the internet via ethernet cable. this will tell for sure if the 1 the adapter cannot read the signal or 2 the adapter is not able read any signals. to test if its the adapter, try searching for other signals.if you find any other signal it means your router. is rejecting to send the signal to the xbox.

Its not an offical part of the homehub, but connect the MP140 and the HomeHub by USB, then on the computer you need to tell the PC that the printer is attached to the homehub rather than the PC. So on windows, start the add new printer wizard, and follow the steps on http://www.wallaceit.co.uk/Hardware/BT-Home-Hub---Use-it-as-a-print-server---Windows-XP-guide/80/article.aspx

Wireless not working from netgear wg311 to a new bt homehub2


Hi Backatya,

Check what kind of security you upgraded BThomehub 2 uses. Since the hub supports more security-types then your adapter does, I suspect an incompatibility there.

You can solve it by connecting through cable and changing security to WEP or WPA (not WPA2).
