What to do if you have wireless issues

Wireless issues can greatly vary. Wireless range and single strength can change based on the location of the Superhub (within your premises) and the Wireless adapter you’re using.

You should also try changing the wireless channel from Auto to Manual then specifying a specific channel for the hub to use. There are tolls you can use, such as inSSIDer to see which wireless channels in your area are used the least - http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider.

What to do if you cannot connect wirelessly

Some older wireless adapters will be unable to see the SSID Broadcast when the customer “You” attempt to connect to the SuperHub Wirelessly. This requires diagnostics before attributing this issue to the SuperHub.

Firstly ensure the Wireless LED on the side of the SuperHub is on and green (3rd Light).

Make sure your PC / Laptop has the wireless adapter enabled correctly (some laptops have a switch / function button to disable the Wifi Radio). Connect a PC /Laptop by cable to the SuperHub 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 SuperHub 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.

Normal operation will have:

Top – WAN (flashing green/blue) Middle – Ready (solid green) Bottom – WLAN (green/blue)

What to do if you have no Internet Connection

Check that power is going to the ADSL2+ router (known as SuperHub) and the cables at the back are seated correctly. If the SuperHub has power, check the light status.

There are three indicator lights on the side of the unit, each indicating different functions:

Top – WAN (green) Middle – Ready (green) Bottom – WLAN (green)
