If you have a port in the back of the wireless router open which you should just run a CAT 5 (network cable) from the back of it to the Linksys hub. That should do it. This way the wireless router won't have to be messed with and you shouldn't have to change a thing.

It would seem that the modem has only one ip address to offer. The switch won't allocate ip addresses to everything, for that you will need a cheap router. Install, enable DHCP and Away you go!

Good luck. Hope this helped.

Linksys NH1005 V2.2 Ethernet 10/100 5 Port Hub Router. I cant get the other computers connected to the hub to connect to the internet. I've tried everything.


Hello!

I will just illustrate on how to configure or to set the correct IP addressing;

Assuming that we will manually put IP address on each computer:

PC1:

IP Address: 192.168.1.13
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1

Preffered DNS server: 192.168.1.1

***note that 192.168.1.1 is the IP Address that your ISP gives to you, so on the other computer (see below)


PC2:

IP Address: 192.168.1.18
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1

Preffered DNS server: 192.168.1.1

Hope I was able to help.

How do you connect a Linksys NH1005 v2 hub and whats the difference between a hub and a router?


A router takes an Internet connection, routes it to several other computers and provides each of these computers with their own IP address.

A Hub, on the other hand, will split the Internet, but the various ports on the hub will all have a single IP address. Makes it hard to use a computer for much of anything, if it is the second computer, you'll have trouble getting access.

Only one computer can acces the internet in my hub , I have a Linksys NH1005 hub , I'm using cable dsl , but only one computer can acces the internet , it does not matter wich port


If you want to use more than one computers you will need to replace that hub with router. Best is to get wireless router because in most routers you have places for wired connections and also wireless connection.

Reason why you can't use more than one computer is simple because most ISP are allowing only one computer to be connected from DSL modem.

Cant find IP address


You need to make sure that DHCP is turned on for the router and the the Xbox is set to automaticallly get network settings. If not, then you will need to manually configure the adress and settings. If this is the case, please post back the address of the router and all other devices on your network and we can help you make a suitable choice and get it configured.

Hi,

Just enable the DHCP capability of your DSL router and then connect the Linksys hub to your DSL router then your PCs to the Linksys hub.

Mode, Router, hub problems


Since you cant swap out the hub with a known working one, then the best advice that I can give you is to try to plug in the computer directly into the modem. If the Local Area Connection is able to gain a connection then you know without a doubt it was the hub causing problems. They actually dont sell hub's anymore but switches, here is a link to bestbuy.com that has a listing of switches and their prices that you can check out --> <a href="http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp;jsessionid=LJWOPCFTAK0UDKC4D3EFAHA?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&id=pcat17071&type=page&st=Switches&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=15&sp=&qp=&list=n&iht=y&usc=All+Categories&ks=960">Best Buy Switches</a>

NH1005 network hub


I assume that besides the 2 computers you also have a cable or dsl modem connected to the hub in order to provide the actual connection to the internet.

The problem may be the fact that this is a hub and not a router or gateway. The problem is that although it will allow you connect more than 1 computer to the internet, it does not do any good if you Internet Service Provider only supplies you with 1 IP address. You need something that handles Network Address Translation (NAT), like a router or gateway device.

Linksys 10/100 network hub model nh1005


I hub is just a network distribution device.
It doesn't control IP addressing, or aid in connecting to the internet., you need a router for that.

What is the problem you are having?

Network Hub or Router - World of Warcraft - NH1005 Linksys


I recommend purchasing a small switch because what it sounds like is that the traffic being generated from and to the two computers and then out to the Internet is killing your hub. A switch would help reduce some of the traffic.
