Port 3 on the 3G Hybrid Connect is connected to the Smarthub2 port 3 with a RJ45 network Cable. The Wan Port on the SmartHub2 is left empty. This means I have only 2 remaining Ports on my SM2 to use with wired devices.
If I connect my iPhone and laptop to the SH2 wirelessly they work great and I get acceptable speeds. However as there are only 2 remaining usable ports on my SH2 and I have 5 devices that must be wired rather than wireless. This is where the problem begins.
If I try to use a generic 8 port Hub connected to the SH2 on port 1 or Port 2 (i.e. uplink) and I connect my wired devices (PC’s etc.) to the hub they cannot access the Internet. It appears the SH2 is blocking traffic from the PC’s when the 8 Port Hub is in between the PC's and the SH2.
Thus far I have used a TP Link 8 Port Hub, a Netgear GS108 8 Port Gigabit Network Switch GS108 and a D-Link DGS 1024D. The SH2 seems to block all traffic from these 3 Switches/Hubs. If I connect any of the wired devices/PC's directly to the SH2 Ports 1 and 2 they can access the Internet perfectly.
I am lost as to why this would happen and why the BT SH2 is blocking any traffic from the 3 Hubs I have tried. None of them seem to be able to pass traffic
