If the is just a Hub, It will not work. You need a router/hub. A router/hub combination allows you to connect to your ISP and link all computers within your home. The cost is cheap and the installation is simple. I recommend you to purchase a router/hub at your local computer, electronics store. Follow the simple directions and you will be operational in no time.
