I bought a Power Mac G4 (version=3.3) second hand from my company. It is running Mac OS 10.2.8 and Microsoft Office X. I wish to connect it to my BT broadband hub. However, it does not appear to have an AirPort card and even if it did I was told that the BT hub mainly works with Microsoft rather than apple products. Can anyone advise me how I can connect and what products I need to buy? Info: PowerMac, Mac OS (10.2.x)

I recently sold my old MacBook to my brother. He has 2 PCs and 2 iPhones, both of which connect perfectly to the internet through his modem/router (a BT Business Hub). The Mac, on the other hand, just won't connect to the internet. Airport connects to the router, but cannot load any web pages. Connecting by ethernet does not appear to help. This Mac will happily connect to any other router except this one.
I setup wireless connection on the device fine and it connected to my BT Home Hub 2.0 but after a while using the internet it would disconnect and restart my hub.

Why might my ipad have connectivity issues with my own broadband (wife's iPad and laptop work fine) but work seamlessly with other BT broadband network!
I have downloaded ubuntu 11.04 and the internet does not connect to by bt home hub 2. The computer connects to bt Fon and bt openzone but not to the home hub. It recognises that the home hub is there and accepts the password but then tries to connect and fails. I tried running the trouble shooting help section for wirless on ubuntu and it advised me to go on to a forum as the computer was not fully recognising my network adapter. My wireless connector is intel RJ45.

I have a BT home Hub 3 and find that whenever I switch off completely,ie a shutdown rather than a minor switch off, on restarting my IPad tries to connect to BT"s Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi with Fon which I have used when away from home. It's more a nuisance than a real problem but I would like to set a default that when in range of my HomeHub it connects automatically.
I just got BT Infinity and whenever I download something or run speed test (speedtest.com) my computer disconnects from the internet and shortly after connects again. How do i fix this? I am running a dell latitude d600 with windows xp. Before bt infinity i just had a normal bt home hub and that worked fine. I don't think this is happening on other computers connected to the network but i can't be sure. I am using Wi-Fi, not ethernet and i haven't tried connecting via ethernet yet but the hub is in a different room and i cant move anything from room to room because of the set up. A previous answer i got was to re intall my wireless router. I thought this had worked, but it only suspended the time before the disconnect for about 1 min. Then it just went back to disconnecting straight away again.

Is there any quick and easy way to disconnect your BT keyboard from your iPad short of turning BT off in services? I tried the eject button but that doesn't seem to revert you back to the onscreen keyboard if you are still in BT range. I also tried turning keyboard off and that didn't help, iPad still thinks it is connected and won't pull up onscreen. The only thing I've found that works is going to Settings and turning BT off.
1) It intermittently goes dead altogether with charge still available. Doesn't respond even to connecting charge lead! Only get out of jail card is taking the battery and reinserting and, as if by magic, it's fine. 2) Sickly WiFi connection. Having setup connection for some 3 months and no problem with my BT Home Hub it has decided now that it won't - at least not directly through the WEP id. It will however connect to the BTFon or Openzone!!!!!! Nothing has changed that I'm aware of but the phone seems to hang on 'getting IP address'. I've tried resetting the Home Hub, taking out the HTC battery and re-entering WEP info but nothing works. Can't connect to my own WiFi.

I've just bought an HP Pavilion DV6 with Windows 7 64-bit. After the initial setup, I tried to connect to my wireless router (BT Home Hub) and after typing in the wireless key, it connects, but the network's read as unidentified and does not connect to the internet. Upon going through the diagnosis stages, it eventually comes up with '"Windows Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration'. This seems like a pretty common problem but I haven't seemed to come across a solution viable to me.
I have a macBook pro, running Yosemite, and cannot connect to 5GHz on my dual band bt home hub. Keeps saying 'invalid password' even though it is correct. I have given the 2GHz and 5GHz separate names and passwords and can now connect to 2GHz without dropping al the time, but am frustrated re 5GHZ. Even when stood next to the router it will not connect or recognise password. Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), OS X Mavericks (10.9.2)
I have an AirPort Express which I use for AirTunes and to extend the wireless network of my Time Capsule. The Time Capsule is connected to my BT Home Hub (Modem/Router) via Bridge Mode, therefore, I run two networks in my home. The BT runs wireless G, and the TC, wireless N. Last week, my BT home hub was automatically restarting and cutting off the connection, this in-turn would cause the amber light to start flashing on the TC and AE. However, once the problem was fixed, the TC went back to green, but the AE still flashed amber. So today, I decided to move the AE to the same room as the TC and try to manually reset it using the push-pin hole on the bottom. That worked, but it only showed up in AirPort Utility for about 5 seconds before flashing amber and disappearing. I've tried re-setting it about 4 times, still with no avail.
Just upgraded to a BT Home Hub 3 from a BT Voyager router. I cannot now transfer files fom my PC to iPad2 using WiFi and the FTP facility in some apps.

I bought Xperia ray few days ago and trying to build app using bluetooth and PC. PC is running windows 7.I can pair (send four numbers, confirm numbers) but when W7 tries do install drivers the drivers are not found. I tried several things. BlueTerm won't connect. Bluetooth File Transfer won't connect also. Also I tried adding com port for incoming in BT settings (as suggested in one post) but won't connect again?!The Xperia is running Android 2.3.4 version! Also, want to mention that I'm able to connect to the same PC (and BT dongle) with other phones with no problems at all!is it true that SE does not support (create) BT drivers for win 7??? If so I'm very disappointed .the phone is great but the driver is really something that's needed!

On 6 th April my BT homehub2 updated it's firmware and that's when the problems started. Broadband went down completely and powerlineadapters adapters for bt vision fried. After 2 telephone support calls we eventually got the home hub reset and connected to broadband. Bt supplied two new powerlineadapters and bt vision is now working. Laptop, iPhones and iPad (and bt vision) all connect fine and work completely well. My iMac running OS X 10.7.3, appears to work in that it connects no problem to home hub and when you run diagnostics it says your Internet connection appears to be working normally... However I cannot get a web page to load - I have tried chrome, Firefox and safari. The bizarre thing is using Outlook I can send and receive email, also my apple devices are still syncing via the iCloud - that would suggest that the iMac is indeed connecting wirelessly to the router and sending and receiving data - just no web pages at all - also it can't connect to things like iTunes store or apples app store... Everything was working fine until the firmware update! Also may/may not be related but when I log in now I always have to manually connect to router, it always connects fine but it used to do it automatically, also recently upgraded to Lion and I have my doubts there too? Info: iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
my problem is that it does connect with PC companion with USB, but not with bluetooth.It does get paired, the pc sees the phone, correct name, gives me the 4 digit code, and put them in the phone, but when I put in the phone, it seems ok, until PC Companion just says I cannot connect via BT, and tells me to try with USB cable.Why would I try with BT, for any other reason that not wanting to use the cable?Well, anyway, BT in the PC is ok (i used to connect with a Palm Treo 1 week ago), and BT in the phone is ok, it connect with car's handsfree.
I have a Quicksilver G4 running OSX 10.4.11 with Safari 3.0.4 and Mail 2.1.3, connected to the Internet via Ethernet and a BT home Hub setup. Recently the Mac refused to connect to the Internet although a PC connected to the same hub did. I tested the connection with a laptop and found the cable to be fine and a good connection. I ran system diagnostics which tells me the Mac is connected to the Internet and the connection is fine - except that Mail no longer sends or receives mail, and Safari tells me I am not connected to the Internet. I've tried every test I can think of - the connection appears fine as far as the ethernet cable, Network Diagnostics state that I have a good connection, yet neither application will connect to the server. I have changed no software in years other than Apple updates, and this is the first problem in many months of trouble-free usage. Information: G4 1.25 QuickSilver Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Imac, osx Leopard. Was working fine for many months (except for the 27 vertical lines but won't bore you with that), I bought a powered usb2 hub to power a usb hard-drive, when connecting the hub after a few minutes the Internet connection stopped and does so any time I connect the hub, now without the hub being connected the internet stops and starts every few minutes making it impossible to do any work. Other macs in the house are unaffected (s I'm having to write this on a minimac). Has something damaged the imac for good ?
I have linux mint 10 and a bt homwhub 2.0. The wifi dongle that I use is a BT Voyager 1055. Before a week ago I could connect to my bt homehub via linux mint and the bt voyager easily and quickly. But now, however, it seems that Linux Mint refuses to connect to the BT Homehub, the BT Voyager dongle seems to be working because it's green light is on. The Bt homehub is fine because our other windows pc's connect fine (I'm on my windows XP laptop now) but linux will not. On linux it recognises that the dongle is plugged it and picks up various WIFI connections including my BT Homehub, but when I try to connect it to the internet via The homehub, it will not, it try to connect for a minute or so and then a little message comes up saying 'wirless network disconected' any one now what to do ?

I've been trying to find a good, solid powered-USB hub to use with my Macbook Pro. I tried the Belkin 7-port, which had good reviews, but it just stopped working after 2 weeks, and it was never powering self-powered USB hard drives properly (even though it was supposed to). So I'd like some recommendations for a good USB hub that has sufficient power to use with self-powered USB hard drives and that won't slow down or stop working when i connect too many devices.
My car has BT for 'phone' and 'audio'.I never play audio that way though. The problem is that when I get in the car and it BT connects, the phone auto brings up the music app and starts to play. I don't have the car head unit set for that input method, so the tunes go nowhere, but suck battery life.There is no way to tell the head unit to not use BT audio when connected. Is there a way to have the phone not bring up the music app when BT connected?
I got one problem with my N96(firmware 30.33 ,lastest version) with NOKIA headset BH-904. In the first week, there was NO any problem in BT connection. After that, my N96 would cut off BT connection with BH-904 every time about 3 seconds right after recognize & connect. My N96 is able to connect other BT headset. My BH-904 is also able to connect other cell phone. It seems to be a N96 BT compatibility problem.

My dad has just bought a 20" imac along with the time capsule 500gb. He has a Bt business hub that is the dsl modem and router for his internet. The Time Capsule was bought under the impression it would replace the Bt Hub. Having done a bit of post-purchase research I see that this isnt the case. It was primarily bought as a backup so the fact it cant act as a wireless router /modem (i mean to be able to get rid of the business hub which is rubbish) isnt a major problem.

Did a quick search through the fora here for previous threads of the same ilk, but found nothing. Apologies if this has been asked before. Can anyone explain why (and how to remedy) my Nokia N97 Mini's WiFi connection to my home-hub keeps dropping and rarely stays connected for more than 5-10 minutes? I've ensured the 'priority list' order of connection and I'm repeatedly selecting a manual connection to the BT Home Hub I own - only to find a little later that it's switching back to the 'ISP roaming internet connection' instead. Why is the WiFi so unstable? My Ipod Touch connects and remains so until I disconnect it - even remembering the connection when I arrive and leave the WiFi range.
I purchased an iMac 2 days ago and this is my first Apple purchase. I have owned PC's for years and know pretty much anything about them, however recently decided to change. My issue is with the BT Home Hub I am using to connect wirelessly to. I use two other devices on this router (iPhone and Xbox 360) both of which work fine for long periods. However when I connect my wirelessly iMac to the router after approximately an hour the router locks and I am unable to use internet. It also locks out the other devices? which I find strange. Anyway, a reboot of the router takes everything back to normal and all devices can be used again, until the mac is used and eventually it locks? Information: Imac late 2009 Mac OS X (10.6.4)

Ever since my BT Hub 2 has updated a few weeks ago I'm unable to connect to the internet either wireless or wired. I duel boot on my netbook with xp and duel boot my desktop PC with windows 7. None of the Ubuntu�s are able to connect, I have no problems with the windows side of things. Has anyone any ideas on how to fix this until BT decide to fix the problem. Preferably a step to step guide as I have limited experience with Ubuntu. I�m using Ubuntu 11.04.
Just got a Sony cyber shot DSC-HX20V and when I connect the camera connector to it it isn't recognized. Does this particular camera will work? I've heard sometimes you need a powered hub in between. I only have a very old hub and that didn't seem to work. I connected the iPad to the port that connects to the PC and the camera to a powered port. That didn't work.
I have a 4 port generic usb hub which I have connected to my computer through a 15ft usb extender (PC on a different floor then monitor). Now when I connect through the USB extender windows 7 does not pick up the driver and gives me a code 43 error, but if I connect the usb hub directly to my computer (not through the usb extender) the driver is found and installed. I cannot see why the USB extender causes windows 7 not to find the driver or show a code 43.
I have a Motorola BT stereo headset....it connects fine, but shortly after streaming audio, whether Hulu, Music or Gaming.... maybe after 3 minutes, the entire BT system crashes, icon disappears and sound returns to notebook speakers. The only way to get BT back is a COLD boot. I've tried cleaning removing and reinstalling all BT drivers to the same result. Any clues anyone? I've read about some Win7 'quirk' w/ Bluetooth but don't know much about it ....
I've got an ASUS laptop running 32 bit Vista and can't seem to sync my Storm with my Laptop. Since my laptop doesn't have built-in BT, i'm using a BT adapter with bluesoleil. I managed to pair the devices together but when I try and configure BT through Desktop Manager, it won't find the device.
I have a Belkin USB hub with 4 slots. I was trying to transfer some movies to an external drive. It said it'd take 7 hours. When I connected the drive directly to my laptop, it took 5 minutes. I'm wondering if there is a better hub to use or if this one is just defective. Info: Belkin USB hub with macbook pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
I have a powered USB hub which works fine when the power is not plugged in but when I plug in the power I get the message that a USB device is drawing too much power even when nothing is connected to it. The hub is then deactivated until I disconnect the power. I can use it as an unpowered hub but then it will not charge or drive some devices. Information: Imac Mac OS X (10.5.8)
I'm wanting to connect my DV Camera and an External Firewire HDD to my mini. I really only need two firewire ports: one for the camera and one to daisychain any further Firewire HDD. This is all in aid of being able to digitize HD Tape footage with the mini using FCP so I can do all the editing etc of the Mac Pro. I've found a few online such as:The Belkin Firewire 6 Port Hub, Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and Firewire 6 Port Hub and the 1Lynx 800 Advanced Firewire Hub (99MO018202).The stackable Belkins look great

I'm not the only person having the issue with there ipad only steaming video for about 5 mins then disconnecting from the wifi. I had an ipad 2 that did it, just bought an air in the hope that it was my old ipad, and it's not. I've tried changing all my router settings as seen in other threads but non of it works for me. I'm going to ask a different question, what routers do people have that this issue does not happen. I have an 18month old bt hub 3, iv tried it on my friends bt hub 3 but he has fiber optic but it has the same issue.
My issue is that I have a usb device that when connected to my Windows 7 machine works just fine, however, when I connect it to a usb hub it does not. When connected to the hub, the device is detected by windows and goes from unknow device to the actual device name and the light on the device lights which it doesnt do if not installed properly.Has anyone else seen anything like this? Its not that the hub isnt working or that the device cannot be installed. Programs that interact with the device simply cannot when the device is hooked up to a hub.
Is there a way to bring up the virtual keyboard when the BT keyboard is connected? Information: iPad 3G
I have a small problem with a Rogers branded Nokia 5310 concerning the headset vs bluetooth A2DP. The BT headset is properly paired.So here's what I am trying to achieve. 1) Connect a 3.5 mm plug into the phone to play music (i.e. either thru headphones or connect to speakers). 2) Connect through Bluetooth for hands-free talking. 3) So music plays through wire connection to car. Bluetooth is active but no music. Can make and receive call through BT headset. Problem: If 3.5mm plug is occupied, the BT headset won't connect (or disconnect if it were connected) to the phone as "active". So music plays through headphones and BT headset is disconnected. If I try to connect to BT headset, the phone will say "Disconnect wired enhancement first."How do I achieve this? Is there a way to have my phone stop detecting the BT headset to play music?
Can i connect bluetooth key board with my nokia 5233?Is there any way to attach an external keyboard withmy nokia5233 via bt??
I have a nice stylish apple iphone dock. It takes a straight forward apple iphone cable and then connects to my PC.What i am trying to do is also connect it to the mains, so that my dock becomes a charger dock without the need for connecting to my PC. - So from a standard USB input, i need to have it connect to BOTH my PC and power.I tried a mains powered USB dock (7 port, 3A / 5V hub) - but it doesnt work, it still only starts charging when the cable connecting the hub to my PC is connected, it doesnt use the mains going throguh the hub to charge the iphone I have an iPhone 4s (if that makes a difference). So What do I do? Info: iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1
