just buy a Four port Router (i have a linksys).... hook 4 of the pcs to the router, use the WAN port on the router to connect the hub, and then you can connect a bunch more computer's to the hub. And you don't have to pay for a bunch of IP's from your ISP!

the wan port is used for, well, the wan. you hook it up to the ethernet port on the cable or dsl box. to attatch a hub you have to connect it to the switch part of the router. the uplink port is best to use because you dont have to use a crossover cable. but when you hook a hub up to the uplink you lose the use of port one.
i went to the tomshardware forums and all i got was this lousy signature.
