Yes it does. Many DSL modems also provide a firewall. Change the range of addresses handed out by
the router to something different than what is on the DSL modem. So if the modem is 192.168.0.1
then change the router to handout 192.168.1.0 network addresses. The hub is unnecessary. The
router should handle dhcp for your two clients and the modem will give an address to the router. 
One interface faces the modem (typically labeled internet) the other ports face the network. So in
the router setup, the address for the router should be 192.168.0.2  if the dsl modem is
192.168.0.1
