First, FYI, I hope you mean Switch and not Hub and I am to assume your Router's LAN ports are all in use as to why you want or need the 5 port Switch and that you have Wireless Access Points or maybe your Router is a Wireless Router.
Next, you have to connect your 5 port Switch to your Router LAN port. Next you need a Wireless Access Point device to plug into your 5 port Switch. It would be helpfull that all your devices are of the same name brand also.
Now you have a Wireless network.

Thanks,
podum

Slow internet


Slow internet connections happen for various reasons, even when you pay for a 'high speed connection'like DSL or cable.Because the internet (and World Wide Web) is built on hundreds of different technologies trying to talk to each other, there are many places where data can slow down before its reaches your computer screen. Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) might be at fault, certainly, but there are many other factors to look at before assigning blame. Some of these slow points are within your control, and can be quickly fixed with a little do-it-yourself effort:-

- Refresh your internet connection
- Shutdown your router for minimum 10 minutes so that your back end IP can be change by service provider
- Remove your Temporary files from your system
- Try to use Reginout for constantly refreshing internet connections

Reconecting the cables to the hub does not make a network


Not necessarily! As long as a lan cable is connected on the wan port of your hub and the other end goes directly to the modem, the connection is correct. The remaining port will be left for the lan cables of the computers. No orders needed. Just make sure that lan cables was properly seated on the port. The LED blinking in the hub will tell you if its working or communicating with your computer. Find it, when the LED is not lit or blinking, the lan cable is not connected properly on the hub (or the other end of the lan cable is disconnected from the lan card of the computers).

If all cables are connected properly and still cannot connect to the network, you may need to refresh the name of the workgroup on the computers that cannot connect on the network,

How? Right click on My Computer.
Select Computer Name
Click Change to change the name of the workgroup that is being use by other computer. Delete the old name if the same and retype.
Restart the computer and try to connect using network neighborhood.

Can u help me retrieve my wifi password?


You need to do a factory reset of your wireless router. This should clear the password in it. There is no password for your 5-port switch.

No internet on Wireless home network despite ''excellent'' signal


When Windows Wi-Fi utility reports available wi-fi networks, does yours show up? I would imagine so, if you're being prompted for the key, and you entered it. So, you should be connected to the LAN at that point.

Then it is a question of connectivity. Using "My Network Places", see if you can detect the other computers on the Local Area Network. If they don't show up, but all indicators say you are connected, right click on My Computer, then Properties. On the popup box, you will see "computer name", and beneath that, "workgroup". Make sure that computer is in the same workgroup as the rest of the network. If not, the bottom button will allow you to change the name of the workgroup.

If you can see the other computers on your network, but you just can't reach the internet, take a look at whatever firewalls you are running, and make sure that PC isn't being blocked by one of them. An easy way to check is to temporarily turn all of them off, and see if things start working.

Also, if you can access your hub (using the web interface), check there and see if the Dell desktop is showing up as a connected device at the router.

I would almost bet it is a workgroup issue, but if it isn't, let me know. There are several other things we can take a look at.

Cheers

Crossover


Ok you've done something that I'm not real sere that you wanted to do. You're trying to connect a gateway/modem to a layer 2 highly configureable web switch. It may/may not require any crossover cables this canbe determined later.
First however you the 100WR must be configured A) Plug-in the power B) Plugin a "4" wire telephone cable this may not be nessarry however I do not know anything about your service provider and a few do require this also make sure that there is no alarm system on the same line or you will have to call your phone company or alarm company. plug the telephone line from the wall to the 1000WR now you should get not only the power light but the internet/adsl light now on the back of the 1000WR is a series of 4 or so ethernet ports. Connect an ethernet cable between the port and your computer you will see that your computer will try to get a connection how it shows it will be some kind of network signal on microsoft products, also a light will light on the 1000WR if not get a crossover.To go any furter is a shot in the dark what I need is what is your operating system the reason you are useing a layer 2 web switch (bet you paid a lot for it) and who we are connceting to

you need to make sure that DHCP is enabled in the router settings and that your network cards TCP/IP is set to obtain an ip address automatically.

Also check that your computers workgroup is the same as your friends eg, Home or Workgroup.

Connection problem


It sounds as if either the router is not set at enable DHCP which gives your pc's wireless adapters an automatic assigned ip address, so check in the routers settings via your web browser normally by typing 192.168.2.1 and check that DHCP is enabled and look in the menus and see if the transfer speed is set correctly at 54 mbps, the same as your wireless adapters. Also go to your wireless network adapters in network connections in control panel, right click on your wireless connection icon and go to the properties, select the TCP/IP line, click properties again and make sure automatically obtain ip address is ticked, ok it and close window. The problem with 'pre n' routers is that this setup was released before the alloted 'N' type transfer speeds and required firmware, hence named 'pre n' and can be quite troublesome at times. If you go through the above proceedure they should all connect, but you must also check in my computer, right click then click properties and look at the computer name tab and check that all the pc's are set at the same workgroup name, normally 'workgroup' or 'mshome', otherwise each pc will not be able to see each other.
