There is a comflict with my IP, pls help me.

Specs: Windows XP, Celeron(R)
Please am a newbie in networking, I have this problem.
My modem is connected directly to my pc and it shares network to other computers in my office, now I bought a new wireless 3G router, sitecom Wl-610, so that wireless laptops can be connected to the internet too.
i connect my modem to my pc, which has a d-link hub, and then connect the router to the d-link hub, each time a laptop is trying to connect to the wireless i receive a message "there is a conflict with ip address" Please someone kindly advise me what could be the problem. I am thinking to connect the modem directly to the router but i don't know the configuration it might require.
thanks

Your first mistake is connecting the modem to the PC. It should go to the router & all devices connect to the router, wired or wireless.

"I am thinking to connect the modem directly to the router but i don't know the configuration it might require."

The would be the correct setup. You should not have any issues if you read and followed the manual that came with the router.

Should look like so:
wireless modem<>router<>hub<>pcs

@guapo and wanderer
Thanks for you help i tried, but how do i get the internet connected? i mean am using a USB wireless modern, on my desktop the modem software has a dial-up interface. so if i connect it to the sitecom router's USB port, is there any possibility that it dialed or not? Thank you once again. I just need a solution whereby laptop users could get connect to my network and this IP conflict thing won't interfere.

"USB wireless modern [modem]"
"modem software has a dial-up interface"

The usb wireless modem most likely is a modem router combo.

The dialup you refer to is PPPOE which is point to point protocol over ethernet. This means you authenicate to a server [why you need account name and password] before you are on the internet.

Who told you to buy a 3G router?

You need to return the 3G router since that does not support what you need unless you have 3G service/card you have not mentioned.

Or is this "wireless modem" really a 3G card?

@ wanderer
thanks very much for your help.
pls allow me explain this, I have USB Wireless Modem configured by my isp, like i said earlier, I connect it to my desktop computer (XP), then i have a cable that goes to a D-link hub/switch which shares internet connection to other computers on the LAN. Now i want some people using laptop to access my network, that is why I obtained this Sitecom WL-610 router. I connected it to the D-link Swith/hub, then access it software with another laptop to change the default settings (security/password precisely). But when my laptop connects to the Wireless router I got this message " Windows - System Error - There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network".
So i wanted to get solution on this issue and was thinking maybe i should have connect the modern to the router(funny though), not knowing how possible it will be.
So please what should I do? it is to configure it from my desktop and how, or do I need to run another data cable from my desktop to the wireless router or something?
thanks again.

hi ..u need to run a command in your pc which automatically assigns IP address to your PC. Go to Run tab in start menu then type cmd then press Enter key and then write the following command.
( netsh interface ip set address "Local Area Connection" dhcp )

enjoy..

valleydust you repeated what you wrote in post 1 in post 5.

I explained to you the proper connection string for these devices.

I also pointed out that a 3G router is the wrong router for you if you don't have a 3G card.

You never addressed that nor did you write you has setup as per diagram
wireless modem<>router<>hub<>pcs
