You pay for an IP address for each machine you put into that HUB. A router fixes that and is less than what the cableco will charge you.
I have been trying to network my two macs and pc so they can all access the internet. Both macs are running osx one is .3 the other .4 and the pc is running xp. I have tried to connect them all using a hub and running the cable modem into the uplink port on the hub. Doing this i am able to get the internet on one computer at a time but not all computers at the same time.
Thankyou for any input you can give me on this problem.
