    Galaxy Ace Won't Connect to BT Home Hub WiFi

    I have a BT homeHub 2.1 I use my laptop via wireless and no problems there.

    I have a samsung galaxy ace brand new and when i go into 'settings' then 'wireless networks' I turn the wireless on then press on my network it shows a excellent network but with a padlock symbol over it then it says
    'obtaining IP adress' then says 'remembered secured with WEP' then goes back to 'obtaining IP address again' eventually I get 'Diasabled secured with WEP'. I have never ever got onto my home wireless and I can't understand why.

    I need a step by step guide on what to do with no abbreviations I'm not very techy

    wifi channels

    Hi there
    I think I know what's causing this as I sometimes have the same issue. I haven't quite worked out a sensible way of stopping it for good, but I think i can fix the issue ad hoc (it may occur again and you'll have to fix it again). I think the problem is you have unconnected devices hogging all the available IP addresses associated with your router.

    Basically, the HomeHub only has a dedicated number of wifi and LAN channels - or at any rate it behaves this way. So if you have a lot of devices connecting to it - or that it is holding open an IP address for, it can get "full up". In our house we have an internet radio, three computers, three mobile phones, two kindles a Wii and a tablet - so it's easy to do. Especially if visitors connect occasionally - the router may "dedicate a channel" to a device even when it isn't connected.So, go to your router homepage on the internet. http://bthomehub.home/

    • Click "Settings" and enter your password (it should be on the back of the home hub As "Admin Password" and it is likely to be an 8 digit hexadecimal number, unless you've changed it.)
    • Click "advanced Settings" - it will warn you that here be dragons, madness lies this way etc - but it's ok - click "continue to Advanced Settings".
    • Now click "Home Network" this should show you all your wireless and wired connections. There may be a lot of unconnected devices that still have IP Addresses assigned.
    • hit "Refresh"
    • If there are still a lot of *unconnected* devices, delete some of them.
    • If there are unconnected physical connections, delete these first - they're sitting on an IP address you want to make room for.
    • Don't worry about the effects of deleting - it just means that the device will have to reenter the password to reconnect - it's nothing permanent (as long as you know your wifi password!)

    Once you've cleared a few out, have another go at connecting your Galaxy. You should be in.

    Agricultural, I know, and problably ignorant of a lot of the details of how home hubs work. But this generally works for me.
