Linksys hub problem.

Hi all,
I have a notebook and desktop networked via a Linksys 5 port hub. It's been working ok for a couple of years now and yesterday I started to have trouble accessing the net first on my notebook and then on my desktop.
I tried and reset all my connections settings etc. and finally discovered that if I connected either pc directly to the cable modem (no hub involved) that machine worked ok. So obviously the problem lies with the hub.
Do you experts think that the hub is finished or could it be some sort of software setting? Just thought I'd ask before I go out and buy a new one.
Tia for any info.
Gary

  1. If nothing in the system has cjanged or been messed with, suspect the hub, connections or cables. Perhaps get the hub tested somewhere.
