Greetings, Can I connect the ethernet cable from my cable modem to a hub (Netgear 4 port with port 4 as normal/uplink) and have 1 port going from the hub to a router, and another port from the hub going into a computer?  Of course,  I want all the computers to be behind the router and within the same network.   this is set up is due to some physical limitions.  thanks.

cannot see why it wouldnt work    cable modem shares internet to hub/switch - switch passes to router - router does whatever you have it set to
                                                                                                                      - switch passes internet to computer who ISNT behind the router

It may not.  Check your PCs to see if they all receive good IP addresses.  If any of the addresses are in the 169.254.x.y range your cable modem may only assign a single address and you may need to pickup a DSL/Cable router.  Also, the cable modem should be connected to the uplink port.

CharliePete00 and Jay Jay are right, though you could call your ISP and ask for another IP address.

you could do CBL modem to router from this router go to a hub and another router, this will get you something like you asked

ebjers - No need for two routers, as suggested by the other guys further up, just this unless the three computers need to be firewalled from each other too.

Dragon, yours will work and a firewall will seperate the computers, however my diagarm will completly isolate the computers from eachother unless you provide routs to them and is close to the origional desighn.

The bit I read was "I want all the computers to be behind the router and within the same network."

OK I see that part, so your Idea is best.  I was focused in on the first diagram I submitted with th HUB off the CBL and the split between the computer and the RTR, thought they wanted the one computer seperate.
