To start with please make sure it says router on it as the title says "Networking Hub". These are two different devices. If not return the Hub and purchase a Linksys Router then follow instructions below.

Assuming you have a router:

Before you begin unplug the power from the Cable or DSL Modem before you start as they will have to be powered on in a particular order I will discuss later.

Your cable or DSL modem will have a cable coming out of it that looks similar to a phone line except a little larger. The cable will say CAT5 or CAT6 or Ethernet on it.

On your Linksys Router there will be a ports/jack that you can plug the Cable into from your Cable/DSL Modem. You want to look for one labled "WAN" or "Internet". Plug it in then plug in the power to your Cable or DSL Modem. When the "Ready" light is on the modem, plug in the power cable to your router.

The next step is hooking it up to your computer. There will be anywhere from 1 to 8 more ports available on your Router that is number 1,2,3,4, etc. Plug another Ethernet Cable into any one of those ports. With the other end plug it into your PC or Laptop, there is only one port/jack on your computer that this plug will fit in. Power up your PC and voila, you should be on the Internet.

Please let me know if this solves your problem.

Thanks,
Adam

I have a 8 port ethernet switch DES-1108 how do i connect it to a DSL cable modem and the 3 computers i have . do i need to use the router still. or what


If the computers only need to communicate with each other then you do not need a router.
Each of the computers must have the same Network name (workgroup) and have the same IP address range. If you have a fixed IP address on each of the computers the IP address range should be the same - for example 192.168.3.xxx (xxx being a number unique to each of the computers, BUT the first 3 group of numbers (IP address range) MUST be the same on all the computers.
If the computers need Internet access then a router is required and if there is insufficient LAN ports on the router then you need to add a network hub connect the router to tht hub and connect the computers to this hub. You would need to configure the computers to obtail an IP address automatically, the router will issue IP address to the computers automatically.
I would not recommend using the Ethernet switch with the router as it would require a more complex configuration.

Since changing isp to comcast my ew5hub will only allow one pc at a time and isn't dependent on which port used. it was working fine while using at&t u-verse. any ideas?


The only thing I can think of is that AT&T was providing you with a modem/router and your new ISP is only giving you a Modem if so you will need to buy a Router to put in between your modem and your Hub.

That said a router has an integrated switch so you might not need your hub anymore.

STP cables - with - Linksys Ethernet 5-Port Workgroup Hub


Most liklely you shouldn't do this unelss you are willing to do the work to properly ground the cables on each end. I'm pretty sure your hub iuses a DC power brick so it won't handle it for youm you'll have to build a breakout box of some sort to do this. Remember that if the cable isn't grounded properly on each end it will actually make things worse.

Running at 10M with Cat 6 cable it is highly unlikely that you will have issues with electrical interferecne even with the the undesirable routing of the cables in your house.

DES-1008D connectivity issues.


Is the modem a DSL or cable model?
Does the router have one ethernet port and a WAN port?
Normally the broadband modem is connected to the WAN port on the router and the ethernet port on the router is then connected to the hub/switch and the computers are then connected to the hub/switch.
The modem gets an unique IP address from your Internet Service Provider and then the router then issues Class "C" IP addresses to each computer that is connected to the switch/hub.

Cannot share my cable modem connection


You need to connect a router to the cable modem.  The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address.  By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet.  It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet.  You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.

Connection problem between modem router and hub


Sounds like you may need what is called a "Crossover Cable' connecting your router to your hub, or if either device has an uplink port, use it on one device to connect to normal port on other device. Here are instructions for making your own cables: http://www.lanshack.com/make-cat5E.aspx
