    Thats the one :)

    Yeah I don't why they call it a hub, maybe its because you can put your phone into instead of using loads of filters but its still a router :D

    I will copy the reply to Raffaz below

    I could ping ip, when the guy I spoke to me gave me an ip address it seemed (in IE) to find the website faster but it still didn't display it.

    When resetting the guy told me to press this button for 10 secs, then 20. The I also went through unplugging all cables resetting then plugging them all in.

    Do you want the phone number?

    Not sure if you have tried another pc with the hub, but if you havent then it might be worth a shot, just to rule out a PC issue

    There have been a lot of people knocking BT Hubs / routers on here and I actually disagree that they are all crap. I went out of my way to buy a specific model since I am almost at maximum distance from my exchange. My existing (and quite pricey) D-Link unit has never performed well. The WAP built into it was quite poor also. The BT unit has been great though. The main reason for getting it was to match up the chipset of the router with the DLSAM in the exchange which has meant much improved sync speeds (over 3000 as opposed to 1500). It has no visible external ariel, yet the WAP built into it is one of the best I have had for compatibility and coverage of my house (even when compared with a couple of load balanced deticated units I tried from work).

    In summary, they aren't all ****e, some are pretty good ya know. :)

    Me too, as it's all my supplier supplies. I have had no real problems so far with any i have sold.

    I know they aren't the best but they are ok.

    Right so today I wiped the computer and did a reinstall from the recovery partition to set it back to the manufacturers settings next I reinstalled the BT software.

    I was getting the error WEP key not correct or HUB cannot be reached.

    I entered the key 6 times but the same thing each time.

    Does this confirm my idea that the hub is knackered?
