Is there any way to connect to the BT router without having this thing installed on your system. At any time when I'm trying to remove it wireless connection stops working. This stupid thing blocks Wireless Zero Configuration service so cannot switch wifi networks. And the most important, I never wanted to have this s*** installed on my system. I believe that there is at least one more person (by looking at some of the HHijackThis logs posted in here I know there r plenty of ppl with BT Home Hub) who was in similar position and put an effort to make his/her wifi networking working without this so-called application. I know I should've got Orange...

The BT Home Hub and any wireless adapters you need to connect to it can work perfectly well without installing any of the BT software from the CD. I know that because I'm using my Home Hub right now -- and at night I connect my laptop to it wirelessly -- all without using the CD that BT sent me. The only stuff you should ever need from it is the USB driver when you are using a BT USB router, but that doesn't apply to the Home Hub since it doesn't have a USB port.

I've read on various BT forums that installing anything else from the CD can really screw up your Windows installation to the extent that only a full re-install of Windows will cure it.
