    Just splashed out on a router to compliment my 100MBPS Hub and Ethernet Network, but how will the router fit in? I'm using an NTL Cable modem, so Do i take the Ethernet out port on the modem into the hub and then set it up from there?

    Im a bit of a n00b when it comes to networking, but learning everyday!

    cable modem connected to the router, the router connected to the hub, the hub connected to you computers.

    Clarification: Modem goes inte WAN port of the router. Hub/computers goes into LAN ports.

    Modem goes inte WAN port of the router. Hub or switch goes into the uplink or 4th port. other computers into 1-3 ports and the hub or switch if enough computers are on the network.

    wouldn't the hub and router be redundant unless you had other networks connected? ditch the hub and stick with the router, unless the router does not have enough ports to support your network.

    The hub is only needed if the ports on the router are too few, true. Or if some of the computers are far away from the router (one long line split in the hub instad of several long lines).
