I have BT Total Broadband and today had to replace my Desktop Hard drive. My laptop is still functioning on wireless through the Hub but I've lost the internet connection to the desktop. I've been trying to follow the Quick start BT booklet and also the BT CD but it says there is no ethernet connection between computer and hub although there is. I've tried switching on and off and replacing the ethernet with no joy. Can anyone help me put in the necessary data to get back online with the desktop pc? Thanks in anticipation.
I assume you have some BLUE lights on the BT Hub? If you are using Vista ? - do the following Open CONTROL PANEL - Click NEWTWORK & SHARING CENTRE- then MANAGE NETWORK CONNECTIONS - right click the Icon for the NETWORK adapter you use to connect to the HUB - click PROPERTIES - Select TCP/IP - click PROPERTIES - select OBTAIN AN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY - click OK - open your Web Brower
To access your HUB Manager to make any changes to your settings type into your browser the following "bthomehub.home" (without the quotes)
Looking at the equivalents of Vista I've got as far as 'right click the Icon for the NETWORK adapter you use to connect to the HUB' but there is a blank screen and no icons shown. That would agree with what my first post said....there is no ethernrt connection....yet there IS! I have it connected between desktop and back of Hub but obviously it's not being recognised because of some omission.
