I have a BT Homehub wireless router that works fine with laptops, PDA, smartphone... but try as I might, I can't get my desktop to connect properly. I am using a USB Wireless Adapter and it detects the HomeHub, and reports a good connection, but it can't acquire an address.
My desktop is a Packard Bell iMedia machine, running XP with SP2.
I've narrowed problem down to the Wireless Zero Configuration... but I can't do anything with it. If I try starting/stopping the service, I get an error (1053 - something like "can't connect in a timely way").
Anyone have any ideas what I can try?

could be a few things

is there any wep/wpa key on your homehub?

is you network connection set to auto?

im not sure if there is mac filtering on the homehub, if there make sure your usb dongle address is entered in there
