Hi!
Unfortunately, hubs or switches cannot be use to share internet access specially if it's connected to a modem. To share internet access, you will need a router. If you prefer not to use a router, you can enable ICS (Internet Connection sharing) on one PC and share internet access to the others. However, the PC that will share internet access will need two ethernet cards (or LAN cards).

Your setup will look like this:

If internet is not a concern, and you just want to connect the computers to share files and resources, you will have to se your computers to static IP. You do not need any additional device - just connect your computers to the hub, setup a static IP on all the computers.

If you need further assistance setting up static IP on the computers, please reply and I'll give you the step by step instruction for that.

For any setup, a router will be the best option.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Make sure you're using a crossover ethernet cable to connect the router to the switch. Also make sure that the router has it's DHCP server up and running.

I have a dlink des 1105 and am trying to connect a second computer to the hub. I have a computer alreay connected. I have Road Runner as an ISP if that make a difference.


You must use a router to share an internet connection, not a hub or a switch. A hub or a switch does not have the necessary functionality to share an internet connection in that configuration.

DES-1005 in HUB working mode?


Unfortunately, the DES-1005 can not be configured to behave as hub and send all the packets to your analyzer software.

Do you have a manageable switch available. Most manageable switches have a "port mirroring" or "monitor" function that allows you to copy all the traffic passing through one port to another port...where the wireshark can receive it for analysis.
