Home Hub 3 - Wireless Issue


Standard Member

I've just had a new BT line connected and BB was activated today (on time!). I have the Home Hub 3 and I've connected the following devices wirelessly without issue - works laptop (running XP Pro), 2 Android phones and a PS3. However, I'm struggling with my own laptop that is running Vista.

The Vista machine will connect to the router (after a while) but the connection is shown as 'local only' and I can't get onto the internet. I've previously connected 3 different Sky routers to this machine laptop without issue. If I connect to the Home Hub with Ethernet it works fine.

I've done some searching and seen some similar threads that implicate Vista, however, I'm struggling to find a solution. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

I've just been into Device Manager and updated the driver for my WiFi adapter, it now seems to be working! Fingers crossed.....................
