Hi @NevUK   The latest smart hub 2 has a setting to allocate the 4th Ethernet port as WAN or Ethernet port.

Home -> Advanced settings -> Broadband -> Full Fibre (FTTP) Mode.

The only time you should have a home hub with a dedicated WAN port (coloured red) is if you have FTTP which requires a WAN port. Otherwise as @@VeteranISPUser says, the 4th port is dual purpose
