Network Hub or Router - World of Warcraft - NH1005 Linksys

Hi. Me and my son both play WoW and all we wanna do is be able to play in the same room on the same internet connection. Right now, we are using a Linksys NH1005 Network Hub, but ever since we did that, our internet connection resets about every 30 minutes, which boots us from WoW server and takes 5-10 minutes to reset. This doesnt happen when connected directly to DSL modem. So, is this problem with the Hub, do we need a router, or does it matter. I didnt know if one was better than the other. Any suggestions on how to keep the connection from resetting??

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.

I got 3 PCs in my room & I got an old NH1005 thinking that with it, I would be able to connect the 3 PCs to the internet at the same time. When I connect any of my PCs directly to de MODEM, I get...


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.

Trying to install a wireless router to a network hub..is there anything special I need to do?


Hi,

These days all the network devices comes are plug n play.
If you dont want extra configurations ( security , NAT etc) and wants to use the Wireless Router for a single user connection then you can use that.

Best Regards

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.

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.

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.

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?

Linksys nh1005 ver. 2.1


first make sure that you are getting lights on all of the devices at the hub, and also that all four are getting ip addresses. if the 4th device is not getting an ip address but does show connected to the hub, then the problem is more than likely your router is not serving enough ip's for all of your devices. also make sure that everyone of the devices are not assigning a static ip that could possibly knock out one of your devices, or if they are all static ips, that one of them is not set to the same ip as another.

Wired Router problem


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.
