Hello there i need help, on Ubuntu Linux i cant connect to my bt home bub when i connect to it says you are now offline and i try connecting to it but it does the same thing ive tried and ive tried, the network name comes up but i cant connect to it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I presume you are trying to connect wirelessly(?) to a BTHub3 wireless network(?) What happens when you attempt to connect - are you prompted for a password? Have you attempted to connect via an ethernet cable and does that work?
Are you sure that you have typed the right password in?
It might be worth right mouse clicking on the Network manager (looks like a Fan being held from underneath in the top right corner), clicking Edit Connections, moving to the Wireless tab, then deleting the name of the network if it is already in there.
More information would be really great.
Hope this helps,
These links might help there are usually 2 different methods to connect to ethernet networks in Linux distros.
Are you dual booting with Windows (XP or 7)?
You may have the same issue as reported here
If you are, then you may find this post helps point you in the direction of a couple of fixes
sorry for not replying but im dual booting ubuntu and windows 7 i have a rtl 8188su wirless card and thats nots connecting to my bt 2.0 network
'nuff said, you'll be needing this thread. Dual booting networking is currently borked on the Homehub due to a firmware upgrade. Need to factory reset your router or follow idobson's fabulous advice in this thread:

Thanks so much!!!!! you solved my problem i manually put in my details for emample :
IP Address - 192.168.1.64 ( mine is 64, the end number, depends on your network on windows)
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway - 192.168.1.254
DNS Server - 192.168.1.254.
i opened up the network manager and under connections i put in the details manually
i found these details by doing ipconfig on windows in cmd.
if anybody finds my explanation a bit vague adn confusing refer to this link below:
make sure that you go down and find a person called notoriousdbp and make sure to give him rating
