Assuming the new BT modem has anew password / security code you will need to setup the N130 using the new password.

make sure the netbook is set to the correct type of encryption used by the BT hub wep wpa wpa2 and becarefull to correctly type in the password including caps / lowercase / numbers etc. It is easy to misinterpret letters and numbers 7 T, 0 O, 2 Z
