Curtis,

Im not entirely sure as to what your problem is, but recently I tried to connect a cable modem to my hub, and with three pcs connected to the hub. I found out the hard way I needed a Gateway between my Hub and the CM. The Gateway was configured with the IP address of the connection to my ISP and I had to assign new IP addresses to my pcs (these addresses were public addresses, The Gateway was by default 192.168.0.1, and each of your pcs have an IP address of 192.168.0.x, where x is between 1 and 255). Ensure they all have the same submask and you configure your pcs to use the proxy of your Gateway IP address (ie 192.168.0.1).

Your service provider may have to reprogram the cable MODEM from his end. However, first, remove all power from the cable MODEM for several minutes and see if that jolts it into looking for the router on the Ethernet interface. In the router browser interface, try releasing and renewing the IP address. You may have the remove the USB stuff in the PC’s network configuration… Larry
