      Sagem with BT home Hub as second router

      Hi all from a newbie

      My intention was to have my main computer downstairs, cable connected to the Sky Sagem router and use a redundant BT Home Hub v.1 which has been upgraded (flashed - making it a Speedtouch 7G) as a second (wireless) router upstairs.
      (The wireless signals from the Sagem dont seem to be at all reliable at any distance.)

      I have cabled and connected the Home Hub via ethernet cable to the Sagem port 3 and this was to be wifi activated to serve two computers used upstairs. The problem is - I cannot get the HH to work on wireless (it does work via LAN) - I have followed instructions from various forums - changed the IP in the HH to 192.168.221 and disabled the DCHP reset everything etc. but no wifi!
      Im new to router fiddling so wondered if anyone could help where am I going wrong.

      Many thanks!

      If it is working by LAN cable, you probably need to change the wireless channel in the HH. Start at No 13 and work your way done. You are sure that the HH wireless is enabled and broadcasting the SSID?
