AOW-605U: why can't it handle 3 computers at a time ?

Hello.

I have a DSL connection (BELL Canada) and a couple of home computers, both running Windows XP. I also have a laptop that I use to remotely connect to the company I work for.

The hub (AOW-605U) I had bought used to be working fine with the two home computers but, now that I have plugged in the laptop I mentioned, it does not seem to be able to handle the three of them at the same time, although it allegedly can handle 4.

Again, it works fine with two of them, regardless which, but one of them is left without a connection whenever the three of them are on.

Can anyone assist ?

Thx in advance.
KJ

Sounds like it may be a limitation of your cable connection, not the hub.
The issue may be that your provider`s connection will only issue 2 addresses

Is your network like this?

cablemodem-->hub-->pcs

there are several ways around this, you can connect like this:
cablemodem--->pc with connection sharing-->hub-->other pcs
(this requires one pc to be on for the others to connect)

or this:
cablemodem-->router-->hub-->pcs
(this allows several computers to connect to one address)
