Verify the speed and duplex of your interfaces on each machine.  It is
possible that a driver was updated that is causing one NIC to try 100Mbit/s
Please provide more information about the ethernet adapters in each machine
and the "HUB 10/100M" along with the dmesg output for the ethernet adapters.

I would assume your "HUB" is a 10/100 dual-speed hub?  Look at the output
of 'ifconfig -ma' and verify your media settings for each card.
