Question about Linksys (NH1005) 5x10/100 Mbps Networking Hub

1 Answer

Linksys nh1005 ver. 2.1

I have a linksys nh1005 version 2.1 10/100 ethernet networking hub. I'm using it for a small home network consisting of three windows computers and one playstation 3. the problem i have is that i can only get the hub to recognize the first 3 devices i turn on after a power cycle. it doesn't seem to matter what order i turn them on in, the forth thing i turn on and try to connect to the internet can't connect. i've tried turning each device on individually but even with the other three turned off the forth device won't connect to the internet.
i call it a hub because that is what is printed on it but i think it is really a switch or a router.
any idea how i can get all three computers and the ps3 online with out having to power cycle everything every time i want to switch between the third computer and the ps3 being online? i've run out of ideas.

    i do get lights for everything but the forth device won't get an ip address, so i guess the router isn't serving enough ip's. is this a manufacturing flaw or is there some way to get the router to give another ip address?

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.

    depending on your model of router, most have a setup that you can change the pool from which it serves to something larger. check with the manufacturer of the router to determine how to get into the configuration to find out.

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.

5 port network hub


Connect the power supply.
connect the ethernet cable from your router (or the box that your isp gave you to get the internet connection) to the port labeled "Uplink" on the hub.
Connect the ethernet cable from your computer or another device to be connected to any of the ports 1 to 4. Do not use port 5 (that port is used to "chain" another hub)
Please be aware that a network hub is basically a very simple device that will not assign an internal ip number to your devices or computer, and if you have two or more devices or computers, you do need that either your "modem" (the device that is installed by your isp) is capable of handling more than one computer, or you will also need something to act as a router (your computer can do it, but you will need to know how to set up that).
Hope it helps

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.

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.

The camera has an IP address and if it is connected to your network via cable or wireless, you should be able to view it in your web browser just but entering the address of the camera.

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.
