Hi everyone,

I'm running XP sp2

I'm using a Netgear hub EFAH05W to connect wireless router (Airport) and my PC to my network. When I have my DSL service connected directly to the PC (no hub), the computer connect perfectly to the internet. When Im using the hub to connect to the PC, the computer will not connect to the internet. I even get an IP of 10.*.*.*

My other computer, using the wireless router, works perfectly. I bought a new hub, and it still doesn't work.

Any suggestions???

Welcome to Geeks-To-Go.

When you hook your hub up to the router, do you hook it up via the uplink port with a Ethernet cable?

Hrm, it may be necessary to use a cross-over cable to connect the hub to your router via the uplink port.
