  mr smart 19:38 07 Oct 2017

Hi i bought a Home Hub 5 from Ebay in a box to replace my talktalk router/modem. my problem is,it is showing blue so its connected to the internet, router will connect to my laptop via wifi or ethernet but no internet connection ive tried everything,i borrowed a hub5 from a friend and was able to connect quite easily. strange thing about the one ive bought after all my attempts to connect it shows on windows7 BTHub5-KPNSLAVE there is nothing in the box or router info to suggest its a BT special , ive done a hard reset several times, i cant reach the BT hub settings page because i cant connect to the internet, any ideas???????
