We have recently had a BT Homehub 2.0 and using a desktop pc with wireless card and Acer Aspire One netbook. The desktop connects fine but the netbook doesn't. It sees the hub in the list of possible connections but simply will not connect to it. There is nothing wrong with its wireless because we use it elsewhere fine. I understand the hub 2.0 uses wireless n and am wondering if the netbook which runs Linux Linpus cannot connect as it says 802.11 b/g on the box. It is one of the early Aspire Ones. Does that mean it will not be able to connect to 802.11 n?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes it will work with 802.11 b/g/n devices.
Check the wireless security settings on the acer to see if it is set to wep/wpa/wpa2.
You may need to change the settings on the acer or the hub. The default on the hub is WPA-WPA2.
Thanks for the suggestions. Tried everything suggested but nothing worked. In the end did a factory reset on the hub and hey presto everything is fine now.
