I have recently bought A 'Bt Hub' off of ebay and the seller said that i can adjust it to any ISP. (I have Tiscali) I actually bought it so i could internet on my Playstation3 as i currently have a USB modem, but i cant even set it up on my pc! The sheet that told me how to set it to another ISP my going on 192.168.1.1 in ie which i guess is the default ISP for the router, but it doesnt come up with anything. Help!

I know nothing about BT Hubs (I don't have one) but, 192.168.1.1 is the address for the setup page on a linksys router, nothing to do with an ISP.

having set one of these up for my daughter and son-in-law I know of no way of using it for any isp other than bt. The only software available for it automatically connects to bt.

To log into the Hub's setup page, type 192.168.1.254 into your browser and use the default username of 'admin' and default password 'admin'(both without the quotes). If admin doesn't work as the password, use the Hub's serial number.

I hav a BT Home Hub which I use for BT I am pretty sure they are locked for use with BT only.

I don't think it is possible - I think your seller was not totally truthful with you. Though perhaps a skilled communications engineer might be able to manage it.

by the way, i am not using the HomeHub but the Hub, an earlier router.

"by the way, i am not using the HomeHub but the Hub, an earlier router"

Then you could be correct when you say 192.168.1.1
