Re: How to use HH4 as a Slave hub?

After messing around with my router for hours, I have worked this much out. You have to have a cable inserted in the wan port, only that way the blinking orange light for power goes away. 


From one hub to the other hub (as you should) or from the slave to another device?

So the power light stays red and the BB light flashes all of the time?

yeah you are right the BB light does flashes all the time with orange colour and the power light stays orange too. The only way the BB light goes away is by inserting the wan cable but since its a slave hub, that won't be of any use.

Ok. Not sure what will happen, but if you use one cable and connect it from the slave back in to the slave (so 3 ports are used in total on the slave), was does the light do now?

So if I see a huge mushroom cloud somewhere over the UK, then I'll know it didn't work!:D

nothing happened, I watched the router and the ports, no change whatsoever.

 

The HH4 did start to spark a little afterwards, then I could smell something burning around the router. I suspect that the chips might have been burnt, I will have to now do an autopsy of this router.

Since the HH4 couldn't produce a mushroom cloud, I thought a different joke could do 😉
