Wireless Network Discovery keeps switching on/off

  Bertie B 09:52 22 Sep 2008

I am running MS Vista on Laptop [with all available updates] and from the Network & Sharing Center I can see that things keeo constantly switching from BTHomeHub-0381 to "Identifying".

When it is "Identifying" - Network Discovery shows as OFF and when is showing BTHomeHub-0381 Network Discovery is showing a ON.

When BTHomeHub-0381 shows - it remains for just a few seconds and then switches back to "Identifying" - it seems to spend more time Identifying!

I am running the latest McAfee Security Suite and Windows Firewall is switched off.

Have you tried re-setting the BT HomeHub? Just press and hold the button on bottom-right of Hub for a few seconds.

Yes - I've reset the hub a number of times but it makes no difference.

with my laptop. After much frustration I tracked it down to an overheating issuem based on how I sit the machine on my lap, blocking some of the air vents.

When this happens to you, have a feel all round the bottom of the case and its sides, to see if anything feels more than just a bit warm

Thanks for the help. I have just spent and hour on the phone talking to the BT Technical Help Advisor who rang me within 45 minutes of my email. Can't fault that.

He reset a lot of the Hub settings - I think part of the problem is that we use Wireless phones in the house and this can interfere with access to the hub.

All fixed now.
