Connectivity Issue

Until recently I used to have a HomeHub3, but have changed to be using a HomeHub5.  

 

I have 3 laptops, oone runs Windows Vista, one runs Windows 7 and the other run windows 8.1 l.  The Windows 7 and 8.1 laptops work fine with the HomeHub 5, however for the Windows Vista laptop it is asking me to install driver software which I did not have to install with the Homehub3.  

 

I have tried connecting the Homehub 3 to the HomeHub5, with the Homehub5 working at the parent hub but cannot get the homehub3 working and I do not want to be installing driver software on my Windows Vista laptop, so how can I get round this issue please?

Re: Connectivity Issue

with the different hub chipset you may need to update the driver for your wireless card

Re: Connectivity Issue

other posters have found they need to update drivers and should check the wireless card manufacturers website not windows update which usually lags behind

Re: Connectivity Issue

What's the problem with installing updated drivers? If it is needed to get the wireless card to work I don't see a way around it other than to keep using the HH3 or to get a wireless dongle for the Vista laptop.
