BY Home Hub 2 - interchangeable?

  Graham. 00:11 27 Nov 2009

A friend has got a new laptop. It can see the router but can't connect to it. The router can't see the laptop. The laptop works OK at my house with another ISP router.

I have a spare Home Hub 2 router after moving to another ISP, would it work at my friends house?

Connect your friends router by cable first then it will see his machine.
Yes the spare router will work at your friends house

Whilst you could change the settings on a hub 1 thay are as already stated locked to BT

You can always try rawprawns work around, rember the hubs are owned by BT
