Hub and IP Addresses

Hi,

I'm wondering if you can assign a static IP to a Hub which is connected to a DSL Modem. (I'm talking about a small Home Network with two computers, one Hub and a DSL Modem)

When I use a Router it automatically gets 192.168.0.1, and I can assign static addresses to the computers that are attached to the router, like 192.168.0.2, 192.168.0.3 etc.

But I don't know how is this working on Hubs, since the Hubs are not using NAT and getting the IP addresses directly from the Modem, AFAIK.

Thanks for your input.

I think we can kill this problem easy. :) Hubs don't have IP:s. As simple as that. Hubs are just dumb traffic splitters. This also means that most of the time you can't use just a hub to split an Internet connection.
