hi eleot.....
not sure if this applies to your laptop .
but a lot of laptops have a switch to turn on the wireless .....check the manual or info sheet that came with the laptop as most will have the info in the book .Dave

You will need to hardwire to the hun first, by using the lead that came with the hub.
If you have the installation disc that also can be used to set it up.

Also if if you have a pc already set up with the hub.
Open hub manager and got to advanced, log in and then to Devices, scroll down and you will see a part where you can search for the other devices, in this case laptop.
