Are You Having Connection Problems?

Turn off the hub for a few seconds and turn it back on. Believe it or not, this little talk clears up most basic of connection problems. Even BT suggests doing that with this tip:

Turn off your Hub, computer and any devices you’re trying to connect for five minutes before restarting. This can really help.

If that does not work, there are some tips that could help. Check the status of the network. You might have to reset that just to get it working right.
