Hi activated my broadband account yesterday and installed the HomeHub v3.0 box. Have managed to connect 2 Laptops wireless and a wired PS3 connection. Problem is I cant connect my desktop PC using a wired connection. on connecting the ethernet cable the response is unidentified network no internet access. Before yesterday I was using a netgear router with no problem I am using W7 and the network controller is NVidia nforce card - Question is does anyone know if this hub has issues with wired connections?
Solved! Go to Solution.

did you try all the ethernet ports on the back of the HH3? is your network card driver up to date?

Thanks for the swift reply - PS3 is working on a wired connection, also tried swapping round the ports in case one port was down but no success - driver is nvidia nforce net controller and worked fine with my netgear router yesterday

Have you ever set your desktop PC to have a static IP address?
Connect it back to the hub
open the command prompt (cmd), then type ipconfig
Check the IPv4 Address, what is it showing?

response to ipconfig/renew is windows ip configuration
is that what you expected?
Open Device Manager (start, type device and look for it)
Then Network Adapters - is there a yellow exclamation mark?
If there is, you may need to reinstall and or update the driver
