If its this one you have

Then its unlikely to work if you plug in an Eternet cable from the home hub. The Ethernet port on it is for connecting devices to receive over WiFi  (Client Mode).

 

What you are looking for is something to act in Access Point Mode. You would be better off using something like this.
