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!

I can't get my Compac Evo N610 to reconize my docking station usb ports what do i do?


I have a solutions that might work, please for the love of god, next time give it as much detail as possible. Navigate to Start>run type:MSCONFIG. Enable everything unless you are absolutely sure you don't need it.
Right click on My Computer, click on properties. Go to the hardware tab at the top, click on device manager to see if there is a conflict.
Try a different port.
Try the hub on a different computer.
If your hub has a power input, now would be the best time to plug it in.
Plug directly into computer.
Make sure the device is plugged in securely, same goes for the devices plugged into it.
If that port is for power only and you plugged it in thinking it would work for data, please don't ask.
Any error messages?
If your computer can boot off a flash drive, Go to bios, test the port and the hub.

Difference between a hub , switch and a router


Hubs, switches, and routers are all devices which let you connect one or more computers to other computers, networked devices, or to other networks. Each has two or more connectors called ports into which you plug in the cables to make the connection. Varying degrees of magic happen inside the device, and therein lies the difference. I often see the terms misused so let's clarify what each one really means.

A hub is typically the least expensive, least intelligent, and least complicated of the three. Its job is very simple: anything that comes in one port is sent out to the others. That's it. Every computer connected to the hub "sees" everything that every other computer on the hub sees. The hub itself is blissfully ignorant of the data being transmitted. For years, simple hubs have been quick and easy ways to connect computers in small networks.

A switch does essentially what a hub does but more efficiently. By paying attention to the traffic that comes across it, it can "learn" where particular addresses are. For example, if it sees traffic from machine A coming in on port 2, it now knows that machine A is connected to that port and that traffic to machine A needs to only be sent to that port and not any of the others. The net result of using a switch over a hub is that most of the network traffic only goes where it needs to rather than to every port. On busy networks this can make the network significantly faster.


A router is the smartest and most complicated of the bunch. Routers come in all shapes and sizes from the small four-port broadband routers that are very popular right now to the large industrial strength devices that drive the internet itself. A simple way to think of a router is as a computer that can be programmed to understand, possibly manipulate, and route the data its being asked to handle. For example, broadband routers include the ability to "hide" computers behind a type of firewall which involves slightly modifying the packets of network traffic as they traverse the device. All routers include some kind of user interface for configuring how the router will treat traffic. The really large routers include the equivalent of a full-blown programming language to describe how they should operate as well as the ability to communicate with other routers to describe or determine the best way to get network traffic from point A to point B.

Networking two or more computers together trough a network hub


Your problem is the maximum speed of dial-up, or about 56K which causes a timeout of your browser, which is why IE can't see the server from your faster ethernet hub to your much slower dialup gateway to the internet.

It's kinda like if I had a great 8 lane superhighway (your two computers connected to your ethernet hub,) and the only traffic available to occupy the highway during rush hour, were the cars on your own single family dwelling residential area block [the feed from your dial up computer] which would work ok for downloads, but be a massive waste of concrete, while if you tried UPLOADING, you would be forcing all the traffic of that 8 lane highway from the commute home to detour to your side street.

If there is a broadband solution available (and there is, even if you are in a rural area, by means of a satellite ISP,) I would strongly recommend your investigation of that option, or DSL or preferably Cable to maximize the speed of your network and to eliminate the inevitable bottleneck.

I just bought a Loigitech Premium 4-port hub but it does not work on my computer. I have a Dell Inspiron 510m laptop of about 2002/03 vintage. when I first plugged it in I got the message (something...


First go ahead and plug the hub back in and see if the ports are working. If they are not. I would try to go into control panel and then goto system and then hardware and then Device Manager. Scoll down to the USB Connection Field. See if they are any explanation points in yellow over any of the devices in the usb connection fields. If there are, Then its a driver issue. I would right click on them and click uninstall... Once doing so you can right click on any field and then click on scan for hardware changes. This will make the computer re scan for the USB Device Hub that you just purchased.

Note: Currently there doesnt seem to be any drivers availible for this device for Windows Vista.

Hope this helps

D-Link Switch


well in your case, somethings wrong with your switch, because it doesnt work in a full scale operation, it will just work for 20 mins, well, theres no existing kind of performance like that.

you better replace that one with another brand. well, you try to use 3com or CISCO, well you could use linksys, its from CISCO but catering the small business side.
