    If you were entering the right key on a fresh install of the OS, I would say its pretty good evidence the hub has had it.

    The only way to confirm the key is correct is to go into the hub manager and copy paste it from there as it can be changed mate.

    You should be to login to the hub manager by typing 192.168.1.254 into your browser regardless of it being a clean install etc, if not then its definately flakey.

    Don't the home hubs have a webpage for setting them up like other routers?

    Just type the hub IP addy into ie and you will be to login to the hub, all the wireless settings are in there. You will probably get the change password screen if the hub has 6.2.6 E firmware or later. Once you complete that, just select advanced>continue to advanced> and you will see wireless settings on left

    Its not going to take you on the internet, the router can be unplugged from the ADSL. You will connect to the router which serves up a web page to allow the router settings to be changed and configured. I have setup Netgear, Belkin, D-Link and Linksys routers before, all are the same. You don't need any software on the client PC to setup a home router, just IE.

    Does the router not have an inbuilt switch, can you patch the laptop directly into it?

    Yep, you just need to know the IP for router. You need an Ethernet lead to connect the laptop/PC to the router, wait for DHCP to assign an address and then connect to the default gateway IP in IE.

    The only other switch was the reset switch.

    Thanks for help people especially Mick.

    When I go back although it may not be until after this coming week, I'll try what Mick has suggested and then I'll definetly know if the hub is knackered.

    Cool, also check that the lappy gets a suitable IP in the 192.168.1.x subnet. 8)
