is it possible to change the default ID eg rename from "BTHomeHub2-****" to something a bit more user friendly? -another reason for wanting to do this is because we seem to be saturated with BT home hubs in this location which makes it difficult to identify ones own network.

if you have a lot of hubs about then try downloading inssider and then run it. This will show the broadcasting networks round about you and their channels including your own. Then enter your router and change your wireless channel to a free or less congested channel.

and when you do try, you could follow this method
enter the hub manager - http://bthomehub.home/
click 'A-Z', then 'W', then 'Wireless connections, enable or disable'
input your password
In the 'Wireless network name (SSID)', change the name to what you want.

You need to add a bit to your macros
inssider has recently been updated to inssider2

I have already updated mine but macro is still good enough to get you to the right place
I like their update - presentation better

Sorry to hijack this thread, but if anyone could help, that would be great.
Ive just setup a new HomeHub2, and it mostly works fine. However, I have tried to change the SSID a couple of times (going through the advanced settings section of the hubs' browser page), and it seems to work briefly, but I am unable to then connect my PS3 to the changed SSID (going through the relevant network settings section). And following that, reconnecting to the changed SSID from my laptop will not work.
The error message is that the WPA key is wrong. I know that I have not typed it in incorrectly, and am wondering what might be going on here? Does the WPA key need resetting also?
Cheers for any help that follows,

Hi, I hope you have solved by now. Click on the networks list right click yours, Properties, Security/General (forgotten, its the one with the password box) Change your password and enter your new one. If that doesn't work. Click forget network then start again
