I have a small network that has 10 computers. All of them are on a local network running through a hub with static ip addresses. 3 of these are connected to the internet using a 2nd network card and obtaining their 2nd ip using dhcp through a linksys wireless router. 2 of the computers are wired to the router and one is using the wireless. This has been working great with no hitches for several years. All of a sudden none of the 3 can access the internet. If I remove or disable the network card connecting to the local network I can get on the internet no problem but when I reactivate the card the internet goes away. I have flushed the dns and reset the ip. I also ran a utility called winsockxpfix but nothing has helped. Can someone please help. This is driving me crazy!

Why do you have 2 network cards in the computers? You should be able just to run from the router to the hub and let the router handle DHCP from there. Also, is it an actual HUB or is it a switch?
