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.

Hi, I have an acer aspire 5535 and I am experiencing problems connecting to my TP-LINK router. After resetting the router and my laptop I can occasionally connect to the internet, however after a period...


Had similar problem with a kindle and BT home hub - had to manually change the wireless channel on the router but couldn't get a channel that worked when the microwave oven kicked in.
I had two kindles and 2 home hubs and came to the conclusion that some devices must be slightly our of calibration and will struggle to connect on certain channels especially if there are near by routers.
In the end I changed my BT router for a Linksys and its been fine since.

How do I access the internet using a BT home hub set up for wireless operation, without having to go through BTfon


Hi Graham
This should be fairly straight forward.
Your BT Home hub should be transmitting 2 signals. One called BTfon and another called something like BTHomeHub2-PGD3.
The second is what your computer should be connecting to to access the internet. If you look at the back of your home hub you will see 4 rows of numbers/text.
One should say SSID and have have the same ending as the transmitter that your computer should be seeing. Underneath that it should say WEP code or WPA. (or something similar) What follows is the password you need to enter to access that home hub's internet transmitter. The BTfon thing is for the telephone that comes with some versions of the hub - it's not for the computer.

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 bought 2 Acer aspire one netbooks. Before Xmas I checked that these would connect wirelesly to internet and they both did - have now tried again after Xmas and they wont connect wirelessly...


Hello, Vicki.

A drained battery would have no bearing on wireless access.

Since both laptops do not access wirelessly, sounds like as issue with your hub. Try the laptops at a wi-fi cafe to see if they work OK.

Hope this helps.

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.

Xbox360 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.

The ports are listed at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874

A manual for using and setting up your BT Home Hub is at:
