Tap or click on the wifi symbol on the Zenbook screen, then let me know what is listed there beside your wifi network name(BT) please.

It is possible that you have entered the wireless security key incorrectly, the network name (SSID) and wireless key is on a label on the Hub. For example, the SSID is BTHomeHub-xxxx and the wireless key is abc123de45.

Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.

to forget a wireless network in Windows 10, you can use the Settings app. To begin, open Settings, Then, click or tap on Network & Internet.

Tap or click Network & Internet is Wi-Fi,

Next, in the Wi-Fi section from the right pane, click or tap on Manage Wi-Fi settings.

The Manage Wi-Fi Settings window contains two sections: Wi-Fi Sense and Manage known networks. Scroll until you get to the second one: Manage known networks.

Select the wireless network BTHUB. Windows 10 will display two options for it: Share and Forget. To delete the network's stored profile and forget all its connection details, click or tap Forget.

Once you do that, Windows 10 will immediately remove the wireless network from the list of known networks.

Then you can connect to it again and reenter the wireless password.

Okay. on the Hub 3 the network name (SSID) and wireless key is on a plastic tab that pulls out from the back of the Hub. The information may also displayed underneath the Hub.

What does the label have as the ssid and wireless key?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The ssid is as I said at 1913 in this conversation.I am confused as to the wireless key - I have been thinking that this is the password.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Should I be using the Admin Password ***** the other side of the tab?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm sure that I have always used the wireless key in the past
Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.

The wireless password ***** you need for wifi on the zenbook is listed as the wireless key on the label.

Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.

okay, check the zenbook and make sure that the caps is not on.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
caps is not on - if it was I would not be connected to the hub would I?
Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.

It should say connected/secured on the wifi connection.

I was just making sure the wireless key was entered correctly.

Try disconnecting the power to the hub for 1 minute, then reconnect the power, then wait 2-3 minutes, then try connecting again with the zenbook

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The zenbook is connected to the hub but there is no internet access. I do have wireless internet access through the hub with the laptop that I am chatting with you on.
Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.

okay. Did you try the power reset on the hub?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Could you please confirm that you are still engaged as it has been 20 minutes since I last heard from you.
Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.

yes, Did you try the power reset on the hub?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have other things that I need to do this evening and as I cannot be sure that you are still there as I have not heard anything for over half an hour I shall have to close this down now. Perhaps we can continue tomorrow evening.
