Getting up to speed
For the first ten days or so, your broadband might slow down or even stop now and
again. That’s normal. It takes that long for your broadband to reach its top speed.
You can help it along by leaving your Hub on all the time, and using your broadband
as much as you can for the first ten days. If you’ve got questions about the speed
of your broadband after that, go to www.bt.com/help/broadbandspeed

Connect other computers and devices
How to connect other computers or devices using the CD
Set-up will have helped you connect your main computer to BT Total Broadband, but
if you’d like to connect any other computers or devices, simply run your CD on the
computer or device and follow the CD’s set-up wizard. It’s the easiest way to connect
other devices.
My CD won’t run. What should I do?
PC users: click on My Computer in the Windows Start menu, right-click your
CD icon, then click BT Home Hub Setup.
Mac OS users: double-click the BT Total Broadband desktop icon, then
double-click setup.app.
How can I find out if my computer or device works with wireless?
See page 25.

Connect other computers and devices
How to connect other computers or devices that don’t
use a CD
If you’ve a wired device
Simply plug its Ethernet cable into one of the spare Ethernet (yellow) ports on the back
of your Hub.
We suggest you use an Ethernet connection if your computer or device is usually near
your Hub.
If you’ve a wireless device such as a laptop, netbook, smart phone or games console
Use its wireless feature to connect to your Hub. You’ll need your Hub’s wireless network
name and wireless key. You can find these on your Hub’s handy pull-out (see page 10).
There’s also a space on page 43 for you to keep a note of these details. Once you’ve
found these, follow the instructions that came with your device – for the Hub, read on.
If you’re trying to connect a computer or a device, turn on its wireless – there’s usually
some sort of switch. Then try hovering your mouse or cursor over the icons in your
computer’s system tray or status bar, and look for a wireless icon. If you’re using
Windows Vista or XP, you can also try clicking Start then Connect to… .
If your computer’s got a wireless connection, find your Hub’s wireless network name
in any list displayed (it will start with ‘BTHub3...’), highlight it and click Connect. If you
need to, type in your Hub’s wireless key.
Connect other computers and devices
5
An even easier way to connect devices
Your clever new Hub has a WPS (wi-fi protected set-up) button. What’s that mean?
It means all you have to do to connect a WPS-enabled device or a PC (running
Windows 7 or Windows Vista with Service Pack 2) is find your Hub’s network name
using the device or PC you’re trying to connect to broadband – and when you’ve
found and highlighted it and clicked Automatically connect, press the WPS button
on your Hub within two minutes. Some devices may need you to press a button.
To find out more about WPS, go to www.wi-fi.org/wifi-protected-setup
You may need these techy details:
Authentication type:
WPA2-PSK or WPA-PSK
Encryption type:
AES (WPA2) or TKIP (WPA)
Mode:
infrastructure (not ad hoc)

Connect other computers and devices
What to do if you have a problem connecting your computer
to your Hub
If the computer’s never been connected to the Hub before, see your Getting Started guide.
Check the Hub lights table and troubleshooting on page 30. If the Broadband light is blue,
broadband to your Hub is okay. If your computer can’t connect, these tips may help.
1 If you haven’t already, press the Restart button on your Hub and then try
restarting your computer. This often gets connections up and running again.
2 If you’re trying to get to a certain web page, try getting a different web page.
The problem may be with the web site you’re trying to get.
3 If you’re using a firewall, check it isn’t blocking your web browser’s connection to the
internet. Try temporarily turning off your firewall and then restarting your browser.
If you can now get on the internet, there’s a problem with your firewall settings.
To fix this problem, see your firewall’s help information.
If your computer’s connected using an Ethernet cable (yellow ends)
Check that this cable is plugged in correctly by unplugging and plugging back in each end.
Or try plugging the Ethernet cable into one of the other yellow Ethernet sockets on the
back of your Hub.

If you’re using wireless, many things can affect a wireless connection
You could have a problem with interference on your wireless signal, your computer
settings or where your computer and Hub are in your home. These tips may help.
• Check that your computer’s wireless is turned on. Some laptops have a small switch –
please see your computer manual for help
• If you’re using a wireless adapter, check it’s correctly installed and connected
• Check your wireless connection software – it should show if your computer’s connected
to your Hub. Try hovering your mouse or cursor over the icons in your computer’s
system tray (usually on the lower right-hand corner of the screen) – one of these may
show if your wireless is connected. Click or right-click on this to launch wireless manager
If you still can’t get a wireless connection…
• Try moving your computer closer to your Hub
• Move your computer and Hub away from large electrical appliances
• Temporarily turn off other wireless devices in your home, such as wireless TV/video
senders, security cameras and baby monitors
Note: if your computer has an Ethernet port, try plugging in the Ethernet cable.
This may help you to get online. For more help with fixing connection problems,
go to www.bt.com/start
If you still have problems connecting, see page 30.
Change wireless channel
Your Hub is always monitoring the wireless channel it’s using and if it detects too much
interference, it will automatically change to another channel. If you want to refresh
a channel, follow the steps below. Or you can manually change to a channel of your
choice – but this will stop the automatic channel selection feature.
Open BT Broadband Desktop Help by double-clicking
on your desktop.
Click PC Healthcheck, then the wireless tab and follow the instructions to change
wireless channel.

About your Hub
Hub Manager
Your BT Home Hub 3 is like a computer. It has its own software running, which controls how
it works and what it does. You can change your Hub’s settings using your Hub Manager –
simply open your web browser and type bthomehub.home in the address bar.
Access to your Hub Manager is secured using a password. When accessing the Hub
Manager for the first time, you’ll be asked to enter the Admin password – see your
Hub’s handy pull-out. You will then be asked to enter a new password of your choice.
There’s some space on page 43, if you’d like to write it down.
You can also enter a password hint that can help you remember your password when
you need it.

Q
When should I start setting up my BT Home Hub?
You can start setting up your Hub at any time – but please bear in mind that your new
broadband line may not be activated until midnight on your activation day. We’ll show
you during set-up how to tell if your service is active.

Common questions 21
Using ADSL filters
Q
I already have ADSL filters. Do I need to change them over?
You can leave your existing filters in place or replace them with the new ones sent with
your Hub. It’s up to you.
Q
What do I do if I don’t have enough ADSL filters?
You can get ADSL filters from www.shop.bt.com/microfilters or most high street
computer shops.
If you don’t have enough filters, but want to set up broadband, you should unplug any
device without an ADSL filter from its phone socket. You can reconnect the device once
you’ve an ADSL filter for it.
Q
Can I connect more than one phone to an ADSL filter?
Yes. If you use a phone socket doubler, you can connect more than one phone to a
single ADSL filter, as shown here.
Q
I have an ADSL master socket. Do I still need to use ADSL filters?
No. When you get to Getting Started guide step 4,
you’ll simply plug your broadband cable straight
into the ADSL master socket’s DSL socket.
A broadband (ADSL) master socket looks like this:
ADSL v1.0
22 Common questions
Q
Fitting filters – what do I do?
Follow the example below that most closely matches your home set-up.
One socket
More than one socket
One socket – phone near socket, extension lead/doubler runs to Hub
Common questions 23
One socket near computer, extension lead doubler used for phone
One socket – extension lead to Hub and extension lead to digital TV box
Tips
• You can connect a phone and Hub to the same ADSL filter.
• You can connect two phones to the same ADSL filter if you use a socket doubler.
• An ADSL filter should be at one or the other end of an extension lead only,
not both.
• If you’re using a phone extension lead for your Hub, the ADSL filter must be
fitted at the same end as the Hub.
24 Common questions
Working with wireless
Q
How do I change the wireless channel on my Hub?
1 Access Hub Manager by typing bthomehub.home into the address bar of your
web browser.
2 Click Settings.
3 If asked, enter your Hub Admin password.
4 In the Basic Settings menu, click Change the wireless channel to avoid interference.
5 Click the Refresh button.
6 Wait a minute for your Hub to select the best channel.
For more information on your Hub Manager, see page 10.
Q
My computer or device doesn’t work with WPA. Can I still use wireless on
my Hub?
It may be possible to upgrade your computer operating system or wireless adapter to
support WPA. See the wireless adapter manufacturer’s web site for more information.
If your adapter or device only supports WEP, you can change your Hub to accept WEP
wireless connections – see below.
Q
How do I change my Hub to accept WEP wireless connections?
WEP is a less secure wireless setting than WPA and WPA2 (i.e. it can be easier for
someone to hack into your Hub’s wireless connection and connect to your broadband).
If you’re connected using wireless, you’ll briefly lose your connection to the internet
when you change your wireless settings.
Common questions 25
To configure your Hub to accept WEP:
1 Access Hub Manager by typing bthomehub.home into the address bar of your
web browser
2 Click Settings
3 Enter your Hub Admin password or if prompted set your own new password
4 Click Wireless, then click WEP (64/40 bits)
5 In the Wireless key (WEP) field, type in a new ten-character ‘key’ of your choice.
Please don’t enter the default WPA/WPA2 key that came with your Hub
6 Make a note of your new key and click Apply
7 Any devices already connected wirelessly to your Hub will be disconnected.
To reconnect these, you’ll need to reset their wireless connection using the
new key you’ve just chosen

Q
My computer is showing a message ‘Windows cannot configure this wireless
connection’ when I try to set up a wireless connection. What can I do?
Your computer’s pre-installed wireless software is preventing you from using the
Windows standard wireless software. Find your computer’s wireless software by
hovering your mouse over the icons in your system tray (usually on the lower righthand corner of the screen). If there’s a wireless icon, right-click on it to run the wireless
manager or utility. Or go to Start then All Programs and look through the list.
Once you find this software, you can use it to set up your wireless connection (your
software’s ‘help’ function may be useful, if you aren’t sure how to do this) or there
may be a tick box that allows Windows to control the wireless set-up. Then follow the
instructions on page 16.
26 Common questions
Q
I’m using a wireless adapter but can’t get a wireless connection with
my Hub. What do I need to do?
1 Using another computer that’s connected to your Hub or, by first connecting your
computer using the Ethernet cable (see below), access Hub Manager by typing
bthomehub.home into the address bar of your web browser.
2 Click Settings.
3 If asked, enter your Hub Admin password.
4 Go to Wireless interface type and change it to a different setting (if you’ve found
that the ‘802.11b/g/n recommended’ option doesn’t work, we suggest you select
the ‘802.11 b/g’ option instead – particularly if you’re using a mix of b and g type
wireless adapters).
5 Click Apply. You can now try to establish the wireless connection between the device
and your Hub.
Q
How can I find out if my computer or device works with wireless?
Your BT Home Hub is already wireless enabled, so you just need to check that your
computer, games console or other device can connect wirelessly.
If you’ve bought a laptop in the last couple of years, it’s likely to have wireless built in,
but you may need to turn it on using a button or switch on your laptop. If you use a
normal desktop computer, this may also have wireless built in. If you aren’t sure, check
your laptop or desktop computer manual.
If your computer doesn’t have wireless built in, you’ll need to fit a wireless adapter.
You can get one at www.bt.com/shop and most high street computer shops. Check your
computer manual to make sure the type of adapter you plan to buy is compatible with
your computer. We recommend that you get an 802.11n compatible wireless adapter,
though an 802.11b or g wireless adapter will also work.
To find out more, and to see our simple guides to connecting these devices,
go to www.bt.com/wireless
Common questions 27
Broadband speed and phone line
Q
What affects my broadband speed?
When you have too many things happening at once, the speed or quality of service you
receive may be affected. If this happens, you may notice slower download rates and
interruptions to streaming services, such as online videos or phone calls. This is normal
and not a fault with your service but, to help fix this, simply reduce the number of
things happening at the same time over your broadband line.
Your service can also be affected if the internet is busy, i.e. during peak times such as
evenings and weekends when more people are online. If possible, try downloading
large files or uploading photos during off-peak times.
If you’re having speed problems, go to www.bt.com/help/broadbandspeed
Q
How can I try and reduce interference on my broadband line?
Consider getting a BT Broadband Accelerator. It’s a clever device that fits on to certain
main phone sockets and, by filtering out the interference from your home phone wiring,
can improve line stability and give you a faster speed.
Order one at www.bt.com/accelerator. You only need to pay £1.30 to cover
postage and packing.
Price shown includes VAT at 20%. VAT rate and prices may change. See www.bt.com for the latest prices.

password were sent to you by email or letter when you ordered your broadband service.
For more information about finding or resetting these details, go to btyahoo.com and
click on ‘Forgot password?’ on the sign-in page.
Q
How do I dispose of old equipment?
If you’ve received your new Hub as a replacement for a faulty one, please return the
faulty one together with its power cable using the returns envelope sent with the
replacement.
If you don’t have a returns envelope or you’ve other old electrical equipment you’d like

Connection troubleshooting 33
Note for the first 24 hours after set-up
After you’ve installed your Hub, it can take up to 24 hours to establish the fastest,
most reliable service possible on your line. During this time, the Broadband light
may flash orange between periods of steady blue and your broadband service may
be interrupted. This is normal. Please leave your Hub connected and turned on and
it should settle down after 24 hours.
…and the next ten days
We’ll also remotely test your line for up to ten days after your broadband is
activated. This may occasionally interrupt your service, causing the Broadband
light to flash orange. This is normal, and should settle down after ten days.
Q
What if my Broadband light is still flashing after 24 hours?
If your Broadband light’s still flashing after 24 hours and you can’t use your
broadband service:
1 restart your Hub by pressing and releasing the Restart button on the back of the Hub
2 check that any extension sockets you’re using have an ADSL filter fitted (see page 23)

directly into your main phone socket
4 unplug any other telephone devices (such as telephones, fax machines, digital TV
boxes etc.) in your home, leaving only your Hub and its ADSL filter plugged in
5 if the Broadband light is now a steady blue, either your home’s wiring or an ADSL
filter may be faulty. Reconnect each ADSL filter and telephone device in turn,
checking the Broadband light to find out if one is faulty. Also make sure that every
telephone device that’s plugged in uses an ADSL filter. If you moved your Hub, try
moving it back. When the Broadband light is blue, and your computer is connected
to your Hub, open your web browser – you should now be on the internet

your contract. If during that time it stops working,
and you’ve followed the advice on page 2, you
should contact us. If we ask you to return it, we’ll
decide to replace or repair it – except if the fault’s
caused by general use, accidental or deliberate
damage, not using it properly or not following the
instructions in this User guide. If you return it, we
may test it. If it’s working, we’ll send it back to
you – but you might need to pay our testing and

Safety and regulatory instructions for your
BT Home Hub 3
Please read this section carefully before set-up
• Your Hub will get warm once connected to the
power supply. Although this is normal, you
should make sure that your Hub has adequate
ventilation to prevent overheating. Never block
the vents on your Hub.
• Don’t expose your Hub to rain, water, moisture
or direct sunshine.
• Don’t spill liquid on your Hub.
• Keep your Hub away from sources of heat such
as heaters or radiators.
• Don’t try to disassemble or open up your Hub

or other hazards.
44 The small print
• Before cleaning your Hub, disconnect its power
supply. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
• For better performance, don’t place your Hub
on a television or computer monitor.
• If there’s an electrical storm, you must unplug
all of your equipment from the electricity supply
and phone sockets.
• The BT Home Hub 3 intentionally generates lowlevel radio frequency signals and so there’s a
very small risk that it may interfere with sensitive
