You can connect them both. It is better to use a "switch" instead of a hub, but the hub will work, too.

Follow the simple directions and you will be operational in no time.

Do you have to hook the router up to a computer?

No - a router can connect to a computer, another router, a switch, a hub, a bridge or a modem. If you are connecting to the Internet via DSL or cable company you will need a modem/router to connect to them. You then attach your computer (or computers) to that router. Routers are useful because they make decisions about which way a packet of data goes - this network or this network? If you have one network that doesn't go anywhere (connect to the Internet or another network) a router is of no use to you and a switch generally does wonderfully and is cheaper than a router.

For devices that do not autosense which connection requires a crossover cable?

Connections between any two equipments of the same kind. For purposes of cabling, you can consider computers and routers as one kind of equipment, and switches and hubs as another kind. This aids in remembering which cable to use. So, you need a crossover cable to connect computer-computer; computer-router; router-router; hub-hub; hub-switch; switch-switch.
