Connecting Laptop

I wonder if someone could give me some advice

 

I am trying to connect my laptop via a cable instead of wirless.

 

I have Win 7 OS and the wizard takes to a box which asks for my user name and password.

 

Is this the same as the information I have in the Hub i.e. user@btbroadband.com and then a password?

 

My hub shows no password.

 

I have tried but without any success.

 

I connect through wireless with no problem and my desktop is no problem

 

Many Thanks

Re: Connecting Laptop

did you disable the wireless before you connected the ethernet cable? you should not need a username and pasword with the ethernet conenction - should be plug and play

Re: Connecting Laptop

I may not have so will try that.

 

I did think it should just be a case of plugging in

 

The main connection from a set up point of view is through my desktop.

 

Many Thanks
