How to set a Router as a hub

I have an old NetGear 814v2 that I would like to setup as a hub. This is what I'm trying to do. I have a CCTV stand Alone DVR and would like to view it from a computer and record to computer if need be. These are the options I have in the DVR

Client Access Enable [Yes]
Subnet Mask
MAC Address

All the computers on the system are assigned ip's. Where the DVR is at I have to use a hub and I don't have a hub. I'm using a Belkin Pre-N router as my router. I filled out the information in the DVR as though I was setting up a computer on the Network. For some reason I can't access it.

I think my problem that I added a IP to the router that I want to use as a hub.
