ethernet should be faster than wireless.

 

can your laptop 'see' the hub in available networks?  have you had laptop connected to hub before?

try downloading inssider2 (istumbler if MAC) and then run it. This will show the broadcasting networks round about you and their channels including your own just to check yours is ok. Then enter your router and change your wireless channel to a free or less congested channel if required

you need to enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser and go into hyb manager then go to wireless.  make sure wireless is turned on and that it is broadcasting the ssid.  once that is done then check inssider again

then try resetting the hub - don't like doing that often but may be enough to get wireless working.  but only once otherwise it will effect your connection.

 

if that does not work getting the wireless to work looks like a new hub and a phone call to India
