Wall > Modem > Hub (uplink port). Have your laptop off and hub off.

Reset your modem and let it settle in for a two or three minutes to renew it'* IP from your provider. Connect your hub/router to the modem via the uplink port on the hub/router. Then power up the hub/router. Then connect the Ethernet cable to your hub/router and laptop. Then power up your lap top.

Any pc'* hooked up the router/hub when you reset will have to be re-booted. When you reset or shut-down the modem, you are renewing the IP address.

Disable your LAN and turn laptop off. Do in the steps Kevin provided. The turn laptop on, after it finishes booting, enable LAN.

If your desktop has the conflict, reboot the desktop.
