Good afternoon Mrs_T and welcome to the forum.......
Can you put your telephone number into http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome and post the results (after removing your telephone number) ?
Can you log-in to your homehub and post the first 12 lines that show under the "helpdesk" tab, assuming that is, that you have a Homehub 5 ?
Have you checked that your Network Card drivers on your computer are up to date. Use the card manufacturer's website as Windows drivers can be out of date.
The Homehub 3 should be able to support all your devices unless of course it was faulty. Are you using the HH5 with the Openreach modem or is it connecting directly.

Thanks for your help
Presumably you are on Infinity 1. Your speeds are not the cause of your problem because you have reported all your other devices were working as they should.
It is a device specific problem with your Vista PC. Have you checked the Network card drivers?
The ethernet connection is on the motherboard rather than a separate netowrk card, the drivers for which are up to date.
Just checking, did you take a note of the drivers and check them with the manufacturer's website rather than clicking the "Update Drives" When you click that all it does is check the Windows drivers.
I downloaded directly from the nVidia website. According to the site the most recent version of the driver was from 2008, anyway.
Is the Mesh computer connected using DHCP to the HomeHub?
Are you sure there are no other devices configured with static IP to your dynamic IP address?
Conflicting IP addresses can cause all sorts of curious issues; though not sure if it could cause exactly what you say.
