Actually the term switch and hub are pretty much interchangeable. All they do is connect multiple devices. There is no internal configuration to be done.
A router is basically just that. It allows User configuration of some elements of the traffic passing through it.
The serial number does point to it being a hub.
So. Assuming all of the above is correct then I question why you have you network set up as you do. If all PCs are clean and nothing was damaged by the infection or it`s removal then the Lead PC really is not need`d. All the PCs and the modem can be plugged into the hub. Then the hub into the modem. Ignore the uplink port.

Thanks again. I appreciate learning the meanings of the different equipment and I really appreciate your help.
I assume that the connection from the modem itself can go into any of the ethernet slots and NOT the uplink slot?
Do I need to run Network Set-up Wizard for each of the Computers? If so I assume that I select the "second" configuration option (i.e. none of these would be considered a 'lead" computer who shares its internet connection).

When you say "hub" do you mean a switch? How many ethernet ports does it have available?
Under your current configuration the 2 network cards on the lead PC would need to be bridged and the NIC connected to the modem would need ICS enabled.
This seem`s to be what you had prior to the infection.(?)
The reason I am asking is you should be able to have all PCs and the modem plugged into the hub (switch?). The modem should basically take care of the rest.
Regarding the previous mentioned infection. Was it cleaned up here? It is possible, sounds like, that the software Windows uses for network configuration may have been damaged. In particular the TCP\IP stack.
Also regarding the infection. Are you sure none of the other PCs on the network were infected? A possibility if it was a "network aware" virus.
