I am due to switch over on Thursday and have received the Hub. All the info and instructions refer to setting up wirelessly BUT my desktop is not wireless And I do not have dongle. I assume I just need to connect the hub and pc with an Ethernet cable and take if from there. I do have a laptop and I Pad which are both used wirelessly. Is your. Reasoning correct ?

Yes, I'm sure that's what I did when I got Infinity.

Oh, & expect fluctuations on speed for a few days while things settle...

Agree with Gordon.

For best results you need to connect the Hub to the Master Socket, which may not be by your PC. If that is so, then you would be well advised to buy a HomePlug style set-up

Yes, the hub will set itself up, and connect to the internet without any further input from you.

As Gordon Freeman says, you should expect speed fluctuations for a day or two, but you may hardly notice that.

When you connect your other devices you will simply have to select your hub from the list that is detected, and enter the network password that's on the small plastic card which is slotted into the back of the hub.

Thank you all, I only asked because the instructions, leaflet etc do not even mention connection via the ethernet cable. They just assume all devices are wireless. I am happy re connecting the wireless devices such as laptop, printer and I Pad.
