H nigel, and welcome to the forum :)

You don't need drivers for routers .. either in Windows or linux.

How are you trying to connect to the Homehub ? .. wireless or wired ?

And which Linux distribution are you using .. Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, Arch, etc. .. ?

Can you open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run these commands and post the output .. if you have NO internet connection from the Ubuntu box .. copy the output to a text file, then transfer it to the PC you're on now.

Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
and
Code: [Select]
ifconfig
and
Code: [Select]
iwconfig
and
Code: [Select]
rfkill list
and
Code: [Select]
iwlist scanning

Remember, Linux commands ARE case sensitive .. and with the first command, you'll be asked for your password .. you won't see your password being entered when you type it (not even ******) but it IS going in.

I have gotten hold of an ethernet cable and selected Settings->Additional Drivers.  I am now connected wirelessly.  Thanks anyway.
