Connect a PC /Laptop by cable to the Hub and access the configuration pages on http://192.168.0.1

Enter the Advanced Settings and select Wireless Settings.

Lower the 802.11 Mode to 54g and set the Security mode as WPA-PSK[TKIP]

Reboot the Hub and see if the PC is able to see the Broadcast wirelessly.

If you still can't connect make sure you have the latest available drivers installed for your Wifi adapter
