Connect the hub with a second network adapter in your computer and other devices on the future network.
Open the settings of the Internet connection on the host computer. Select the tab "Access". Open Internet access to local network using hub. After applying the settings, the IP address of the second network adapter must be set to 192.168.0.1.
