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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
a bit confused with the question. This question is listed under "network hub" meaning you have a physical cat5 cable running to the xbox 360. and the xbox 360 is asking for a WPA key.
WPA is one of the standards for wireless security. please clarify the question and let us know more about your home network.
