Using LAN 2 port for Internet access on Infinty modem

Morning All,

 

Are there any ways you can gain access to LAN 2 on the Opernreach modem and use it for internet access?

 

I could do with one extra LAN port if possible.

 

Thanks in advance

No.

 

The LAN2 port is not enabled. Depending on which modem you have it can be enabled but only to access the modem, not the internet.

 

You can get a cheap 5 port switch which will give you 3 more than you have now (it will need one on the switch and one on the HH to work).

If you have a hg612 then yes you can use Lan2 for internet access but you have to hack the modem, there are loads of HG612's on ebay so get one and hack it to use Lan2 Click Me
