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

Associate wireless router to my home hub


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.

Nc4000 wireless connection to bt hub not possible


Bluetooth (BT) is not compatible with WiFi. There is no way to do that, and it must be done with or thru a PC, or laptop. The USB ports on wireless routers are for network storage, and/or network access to printers. Hope this helps

I have a Dell wireless 1450 Wirless usb adapter but do not have the disc. What should I do to have it working?


I have the dell 1450 and couldn't connect to my BT Home hub 2.0. either. I appreciate it's not really an answer but I swapped to a different wi-fi adapter and was straight in, no bother. It's some kind of issue with the security key - without security the 1450 was fine, as it was with my old Draytek plus security. I guess I could have spent hours on trying to understand why the 1450 and hub won't get along but a few quid on a different card seemed a better bet! One thing - there is certainly an issue and BT support don't know about it.

How do i connect a canon pixma op 4300 to the usb


You can share your printer as a shared printer on your network. This computer and the attached printer must be on at all times to allow other computers on your network to print on this printer.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions on how to setup a shared printer :

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.

I have just signed up to bt braodband and got a bt home hub. As a result I have a spare BT voyager 54g wireless network modem. Can I use this to print wirelessly to my lexmark printer


You can't use wireless adapter to hook printer to wireless network. You need a wireless print server. Example is Linksys or DLink Wireless-G PrintServer.

I have a new Compaq laptop running Vista home and an old samsung 4216f. I tried a parallel to usb and cannot get the printer to work. No parallel ports on laptop and no usb on printer. Any ideas?


If you have a home network, try a Print Server with parallel port. You will connect the printer to the print server via parallel, and the print server to a network hub/switch/router (any of the listed) via a network cable, and the computer to the hub/switch/router via network cable or wireless.

Cost should be around $20 - $60 depending on make/model.
