On the last ipconfig /all did you plug your computer into the hub or the router?

If your hub is in fact acting as a DHCP server than the DHCP server functionality needs to be turned off the router. Turn it back on as a DHCP client.

Have you considered putting the router in front of the hub? As in link from modem to WAN port on the router, PC port on router to the hub.

I ask one of my friends who is more into networking to look at it and since I was running it from the hub I needed to plug the cable into the uplink port on the router instead of the WAN port. Since I was lucky enough to have that port on my router all I did was plug that in. But if I hadn't had the port I would've had to use a cross-over cable. Once again the problem is the littlest thing.

I'm glad you got everything worked out. In school, they teach what hubs are and what they do not teach us to troubleshoot hub problems because they tell us they don't exist in the real work anymore (no one uses them).
