    Hi, yesterday afternoon my wireless internet all of a sudden stopped working. I can view the wireless network but when trying to connect to it i get "Windows was unable to connect to BTHomeHub2-SHHS (which is my SSID)". Ive tried the obvious, restart laptop, router, unplug router and also press the reset button on the router but no luck, it works when connecting an Ethernet cable to the laptop and router so my internet is working just the wireless. When going to the routers webpage I've tried changing the wireless interface type from 802.11 b/g/n to b/g but still no luck. Can someone please help? not sure what other information you would need but hopefully this is enough. Cheers.

    EDIT: figured out why it was doing this.. the arial that i use for my freeview box seems to be interfering with the wireless signal. Is there no way i can stop this? like changing the channel or something? thanks.

    Routers usually default to channel 6.
    You might try changing it ot channel 1 or 11.
