Hi Dave,
the hub works with any device I have (1 laptop, 1 pc, 2 routers, 1 wifi-accesspoint) and I also tried to connect the etherstix to my routers and directly to my pcs using a cross-cable.
I tested the etherstix using:
- an adsl router with built-in dhcp enabled and working (tested with laptop and pc)
- an eth-router  with built-in dhcp enabled and working (tested with laptop and pc)
- a linux-box with dhcp3d
- a windows box with "dhcp turbo nt"
In all tests I sniffed the network with pcap applications (tcpdump and ethereal/wireshark) and with iptraf with no output, except some arp packet from my pc/laptop, but no packets with an arp-address different than the one of my pc.
Etherstix "feels" itself on the net (leds start blinking when I connect some device to it through an eth cable), but no other device "see" it on the net.

Do you have a DHCP server running on your network? In its default
configuration the gumstix is setup to use DHCP to acquire its IP

The fact that LED4 is on means that the etherstix is detecting the
link. I'm not sure why the lights aren't on the hub. DO you have any
other hubs you can try?

Have you tried power cycling the hub? I know one of my switches needs
rebooting every few months.
