Unidentifiable network

Hello all,

I trying to monitor my network traffic, I using a DSL modem to a 4 port hub (non switch) connecting a Linksys wrt54g wireless switch, and a remote computer. This remote computer has a fixed ip address in which I remote log in too, from a wireless xp computer. If this remote computer is connected to the Linksys wireless switch Win 7 states Home network, if connected to 4 port hub, Win 7 states Unidentifiable and I can't remote connect. Background the DSL modem is were the Linksys switch is, set the remote computer to a 192.168.0.X address.

It sounds like you have the hub between the DSL modem and the Linksys. In a basic network, the Linksys wireless router is the "dividing line" between the local network and the rest of the world. Everything on the output side of the router is the "Home network". Normally you would not put anything between the DSL modem and the router.
