The D-Link DES-1008d is an unmanaged switch that does not need any configuration to work. You just need to plug in your device (PC/Xbox/Laptop) into one of the ports of the switch, using an ethernet patch cord, and it would start communicating with it. I think your xbox 360 already includes a patch cable in the box. You also need to connect the 1008d to your DSL/Cable/whatever modem, using a similar ethernet patch cord, in order to get online.
This is all that you need to do as far as your 1008d is concerned.
-if your NAt is strict and cannot connect try turning your hub off for 30 seconds then turning it back on if that didnt work. -try resetting your IP address. if that didnt work -take addaptor from xbox to pc out for 30 seconds, then put it back in if that didnt work - try opening thies ports

Sometimes depending on the router brand, it's not possible to open your NAT, this simpily becuase some are not specificly designed for Xbox Live purposes. A good example of this is Belkin routers. These brands are most commonly made for Buissness connection servers. If you are experiencing a STRICT/MODERATE Nat with a Belkin router, the chances are you are going to have to deal with it, but that is not 100% of the time. If you've have attempted several techniques to open your Nat and the changes arnt happening, i'd recommend a 'N' powerd Belkin router, the most majority of these routers work 100% perect for Xbox Live, I myself oned one but changed due to a broadband switch.
How do I change the NAT firewall protection? (Open/Moderate/Strict)
Find your IP address number then type it in on your web browser, this will bring up all your switchable options where several options can be changed to your approval. The NAT firewall is one of these options which can be changed. (like I mentioned before, if you own a Belkin router, the chances are even after changing the fireall level, it will turn back to moderate or strict)
Ok you need to set DHCP OFF, go to Start>>RUN>>services.msc then scroll down until you find DHCP Client,. set to OFF & disable it. Reboot. Now login to router and ensure DHCP is ON. That is that problem sorted. So try that.
You need a cable or dsl modem to connect to the internet. From the modem you run an ethernet cable to the "broadband" or "Internet" port of your router. Also make sure your lynksys is a router, not a switch
Is the PC's connected to the D-Link able to browse the Internet? Sometimes the MAC Address will bind to certain IP's and must be cleared out when the Router is replaced. Please unplug the power to the router, X-Box and Cable or DSL modem. 1st plug in the power to the DSL/Cable modem until the "Ready" light comes on. 2nd plug in the power to the D-Link Router, wait 30 seconds then plug in the X-Box, power on and test. If a computer plugged into the D-Link will browse Internet then this is the solution to your problem.
Does the xbox work when connected directly to the internet (not through the hub)? If so, there may be some kind of conflict related to sharing your internet connection between the PC and xbox, and I'd reccommend getting a router instead of a hub.
Are you working with a router or a hub...there's a big difference in how they work. The heading above your post says LinkSys NH1005 Networking hub, but your post refers to a Router.(?) Can you provide the exact brand and model number from the device?
A router can support several devices and allow them to share a single IP address on the Internet. Router setup is usually automatic, but there are several settings that can be adjusted manually if it doesn't work right. If this is a hub, the ability to assign addresses to more than one device at a time will have to be set up by your ISP on the cable modem.
Your description of the problem sounds like you may be working with a hub, and the cable modem isn't supporting connection of more than one device at a time to the Internet. If that is the case, you will need to contact your cable provider to see if they can support more than one network device using a hub. If not, you will need to upgrade to a router.
