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. EDIMAX Technology Official Website Wireless Routers 300Mbps Wireless...
I can figure out that your laptop runs Windows Vista. Go to Control panel, then Network and Sharing centre and then go to Manage Network Connections and see if the Wireless Network Connections icon is disabled, make sure it is enabled and not connected. Try disabling and enabling it again. If still no go, try to manually turn off the wireless switch and turn it back ON. Check the light status (if any), confirm the error message too. If still, it seems not to be working, then the internal switching might have gone bad. You need to get the laptop serviced.
have you typed the key exactly? viz uppercase/lowercase. The switch(hub) might have MAC address filtering on. also check if the switch(hub) has a DHCP running, which allocates IP addresses, if not you need to set your wireless connections IP address within the same range as the switch. If all else fails attempt to connect the switch via a utp network cable which should have been suplied with the switch(hub) so you can access the switch and make the necessary changes... email me on [email protected] should you need more info.
The wireless card has dropped the IP address, to get the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address, right click on the wireless connection (the one with the red X) and left click on Repair.
When the red X disappears then you can connect to the Internet.
It should say Local Area Network and Wireless network (if your card is installed properly). Right click the Wireless Network and make sure it is enabled. Then click "View Available Wireless Networks" and choose your network.
If you are trying to setup a secure wireless network, that may be a completely different issue.
uninstall the bt desk top help first then the bt wireless connection , if ur wireless card has an utility use it to configure . the connection might be due the conflict between the wireless software. checked if ur getting limited or no connectivty if so delte and recreate the wireless profile, if ur using bt router like home hub or voyager go the router page with the ip for hub its 192.168.1.245 and navigate to advance and keep the wireless channel to 9 or 11 for voyager the its 220.127.116.11
