If you can't wait 20 minutes before chasing, perhaps you should pay for your technical support? smile

In answer to your question, yes there is.

you shouldnt have to add a device basically scan for available wirless networks pick up the 2500v and then enter the wirlesskey

simples

Hi, my first visit looking for help.
I have a BT Voyager hub that I have been using fine for 5 years or more.
I am trying to add a Roberts Stream 83i internet radio to my network but it canít find the WiFi SSID.
Have tried setting it up manually with the info from the data plates on the Voyager but it fails to connect.
The Radio suppliers said to make sure the hub is not hiding the SSID. To look at the hub settings on my computer but I donít know how to do this (Win 7). I checked with BT and they say the hub is not configured to hide the SSID.
I did manage to set a new WiFi printer up on the hub a year ago & that works fine.
Can any one help?
1. How do I find the hub setup on my PC?
2. Why canít the radio, which scans for WiFi networks automatically, find my network?

Generally it will be at

http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1

route print from the command prompt will let the gateway IP if neither of the above work.

Does anything else in the house connect to the WiFi

Sorry, I am not a computer whiz and do not understand your reply.
The only thing in the house that connects to the WiFi is the printer.

If only you can remember how you did your printer, it will be the same.

MrSaffron is suggesting you try those URL addresses (probably the 2nd) in the Address Box of your browser, or follow these instructions if it is easier: http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/frogstats.php#15 and look for Wireless Setup or suchlike,

If you've forgotten your Wireless Password you could be in trouble and may need to reset it.

Thanks, sorted.
The hub was set to hide the SSID so radio could not find it.
