    @jaye_ellen I feel that you're descriptions of various inter-networking devices lack accuracy. on your initial solution stating that all the ports on the hub will have a single IP address, this is false. Networking Hubs aren't IP or MAC address aware, furthermore IP address cant be assigned to "ports" on network devices until you get to Routers and Layer 3 Switches. As for the statement that only one IP address will be given (from the ISP), this is only true for some ISPs. Many ISPs will provide a dynamically assigned address to any device connected to their network. If you have any questions, please let me know, I would be more than happy to discuss computer networking with you! Best, Mike

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.

    A hub is a totally dumb device. If it gets a data signal, it just forwards it to everybody and hopes someone will pick it up.

    A switch is just barely smarter. If it gets a data packet, it will try and find the device it goes to, and then send it to that device only, but the device MUST reside on the same subnet. A switch wont send data packets to computers on different subnets

    A router is just barely smarter than a switch. It only gets a data packet if the destination computer isnt on the same subnet or LAN. The router then figures out where in the world that computer is located and then sends it in the right direction.

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.

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.

How do I connect a LInksys NH1005 hub to a wireless router? Do I have to connect directly to the dsl modem first? change the ip address and then connect the router?

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.

Slow internet.

Your hub can support more that fiber optic puts out. Problem might be a slow computer. Run a internet speed test see what it gets through hub and then straight to the computer bypassing the hub. If possible. If there is a big difference either way what ever is slower is most likley the issue.

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.

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.
