Unable to make Wireless connection for devices

W7. Internet connection is through BT Home Hub2 and is hardwired. No problem at all. But my wireless connected BT internet radio and my wife's Kindle can no longer connect to the internet. The radio says connecting to network but does nothing. I have changed nothing I am aware of. I have looked at the BT Home Hub Wireless set up page and the settings are Using WPA and WPA2 and the correct wireless encryption key is there. Channel selection is automatic. I have changed that to 3 other suggested channels, no result. Frankly it is all Greek to me and I do not know what I am looking at. Can anyone advise what might be wrong and how I reconnect the Kindle by wireless and the internet radio please? (I know I can use a USB to connect the Kindle, but not the radio).

I saw another post on the same subject and it appeared that the internet radio uses WEP settings to connect.
There appear to be two options available - either upgrade firmware for radio or change Home Hub to WEP.
I am attaching an article from BT about this particular problem, although your radio may not be a BT model. I hope this will be useful.
In relation to the Kindle it may be that you need to change the wireless channel - there are posts that indicate that channel 13 has problems but channel 11 is fine. To do this you will need to access the router's configuration pages. BT article here.
