you're giving the DVR a static LAN IP, not the hub. does your DVR have a hard coded static IP address already? if it does then change teh DVR to get a DHCP IP.
and just to clarify - ignore the stupid advice legacy1 gave about having to buy your own router, that just the usual stock answer he/she seems to give for everything regadless of the problem - i think they have a shortcuty key to paste it into every reply they make.
