sopwith - how were you connected to Orange BB? Wireless, or by Cable from Router to PC? HomeHub3 needs to be connected to PC via Ethernet Cable (supplied with Hub), and for this of course your PC needs a Ethernet Card, or if it is a laptop, an Ethernet connection socket for the cable.

If you are useing wireless you will need to set the PC to the routers security code, that is on the little pull out tab on the top of the HH3, also put one of the stickers that came with the HH on PC.

There is no set up required on the BT home hubs and unless you connect to it by USB cable there is no need to install anything from the provided CD

one of the best online sources for info is here

I ran the CD to set up wireless on my laptop which made it easy.
