    Hi,

    My BT hub power light keeps flashing orange, will go green for about 2 - 3 minutes, then click off and go back to flashing orange. If I'm lucky I get about 3-4 mins of internet. Had it for two days now, it's just not settling. Anyone else had same problem??

Laptop unable to connect wirelessly to new BT Home Hub (it was fine with the previous Homehub and works OK with fixed cable). BT say the wireless adapters on my laptop are out of date. Laptop O/S is...


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.

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.

lol. I'm in the US, so I'm giving you instructions from an "everybody has ADSL from AT&T" point of view.
try reading this page: http://www.frequencycast.co.uk/homehub.html

looks like your router config URL is 
http://bthomehub.home/ 
try digging around in there to find/change your password and to see how your wireless is configured. I can't give you more detail, I have never had any experience with HomeHubs... you may wanna read through your homeHub manual (the wireless section or whatever).
ah those British beople always have to do everyhing their own way... lol. 
sorry I couldn't be more help. good luck.

Cannot connect to wifi on our bt home hub


Could be a variety of reasons.
Assuming you have not had it working before
Assuming the wifi is broadcasting it SSID
Assuming you have laptop connected by ethernet cable to hub:

Assuming you have XP:

Go to start/control panel/network connections/right click the wireless lan icon and select properties/select wireless connections and delete ALL previous entries.

With Vista go:start globe then

Control Panel\Network and Sharing\Manage Wireless Networks and delete all entries

Now:

press windows key and R
type cmd and enter
type ipconfig and enter
note lower set of figures ie 192.168.0.1
open browser and type in those figures and enter
should now open router firmware
When asked for log in use defaults of admin - admin or admin - password

navigate to wireless security and set encryption to WEP 64bit and create a simple encryption code - save settings

Change broadcast channel to 8

make sure wifi is set to open and not shared

Save all settings, allow hub to reboot and now see what happens

Wireless configuration


Christalnet,
I'm afraid I'm a technical novice. I'm using windows xp, and each time bt have offered assistance they have taken over the computer and wizzed around checking programmes, changing settings, changing channels and attempting to connect to the hub. I've been in the dark as to what exactly they have adjusted, and each time I've been connected to a different technition.

Firewalls


If you want to disables Vista’s FIREWALL then you need to go into your Windows Security Center (you can easily turn ‘off’ the firewall from there).
Click Start and click Control Panel.
Click Security and then select Windows Firewall.
Click Change Settings.
From the window that appears, click the Advanced tab.
Remove the check beside the connection that you want to disable the Windows Firewall for.
Click OK.
