hi
i have a mac laptop, a computer running xp 2000 and a xbox 360. I have just received my new bthomehub 2 as the old one blew out after a lightening storm.

I have managed to get the mac and xbox 360 reconnected but my computer doesn't seem to work. The computer can find the network and i have inserted the wpa key(password) but it wont connect. Every think else is fine, it can't be that the computer's adapter is out of range like i said it can find the network. Before the storm everything including the computer work perfectly and with a good connection and speed.

I did manage to get it to work twice with the new homehub but i can't reconnect now.

any ideas?

XP 2000? What's that?


Are you sure you weren't running WEP before? A computer with Windows 2000, which I assume is what you have, may not have drivers new enough for WPA or WPA2.

I'd start with the latest drivers for the wireless adapter you have. The exact make and model of the wireless adapter would be a big help here. :smile:

Did you download and install the latest wireless drivers for that card? I always go with at least WPA, and I'm currently running WPA2-AES here for maximum security.
