Linksys Router into my hub (not the cable modem)

I have my network setup, where the cable modem is plugged into my home pc.
The pc has 2 NICs, so all I do is turn on ICS, and plug the other NIC into my hub.

Now any pc/laptop I hook up to the hub gets internet immediately.

So I now have a wireless AP router from linksys.
I want to simply plug it into the hub, and have it route wireless requests through my pc, just as any other thing connected to the hub does. Can't seem to get it to work just right.

Can I do this? I have the Uplink connected to my hub. Not sure what to do with the WAN, but I seem to get it semi working by plugging that into the hub too. I get it slightly working if I set my wireless laptop to a static ip and stuff, but I want the router to take care of DHCP for the wireless side (and leave ICS taking care of the DHCP on the wired side).

there must be a way to do it - i just don't know the settings and stuff....

any help would be great!

Thanks

plug the cable modem into the wan port
plug the uplink on hub into port1 on router (im assuming that the wireless device has a few wired ports.
plug all computers into the hub, you dont need the 2nd nic now

you should now be getting dhcp from the wireless router on all machines - including the ones that are on the hub

i hope this helped
ps. IC sharing sucks - your much better off using the router as the dhcp server

I know how to do that - it's very easy.

But I am asking for how to do it through the hub.

it may be a worse way, but I would like to know how to do it.

Thanks for any help,

plugged the router's uplink to my hub. nothing to the WAN port.

turned off dhcp on the router.
set the router's ip address to a static one that fits in my lan (ip, and subnet mask)

rebooted everything, and power cycled the router.

everything seems to be cooking.
