You absolutely can use both Ethernet and wireless as the same time.

What is happening with your laptop is normal. If the laptop connects by Ethernet that takes priority over wireless. It will not connect to both at the same time. Because it is connecting by Ethernet it will not show the wireless signal.

 

What is your relative connecting with, is it a laptop, phone etc and are they connecting to your Homehub wireless signal and not the BTWifi one.

 

 

EDIT: When you say it does not show the "Wifi" connection, do you mean on the laptop or on the Smarthub?

Try ONE factory reset of the Homehub by pressing a pin into the recess button on the rear for about 20 seconds. This can often sort out problems.
