It can't find a DHCP server to obtain an IP address. Is DHCP enabled on your router?

can i set up a dhcp server?

Your homehub is a DHCP server when that feature is enabled, and it usually is by default. Most likely some quirk of Linux

You need to check the settings on the router

what if i know the ip adress is there a way i can tell the wireless adapter to connect using it?

as far as im aware the router settings are all correct.

Choose an address in the same subnet as the Homehub.

I think it uses - 253, pick an unused address from that range. Not 254 as that's the web interface, not 1.1 as that's most likely the gateway address.
I could be wrong, as I don't use a homehub but just check anything to do with DHCP, address pool/range and use a figure from the relevant range of numbers.
