I've got a BT Hub 4.
I have alrady got an Internet radio and a Humax connected. I'm wanting to ditch the wireless connection and connect using ethernet to my PC, my wife's laptop and another Internet radio. Can I use the red WAN port?
If not how do I manage to connect everything by ethernet?
Solved! Go to Solution.
No you cannot use the WAN port.
To give yourself more ports you need an Ethernet switch like this.
If you look on the web, you may find slightly cheaper ones which may work with the home hub.
the red WAN port is normally used FTTC when you use a separate modem and router - modem connects to WAN port
Thanks for your prompt reply Keith.
Looking at the internet switch link you gave, the diagram seems to imply that the existing ports on the hub are redundant - only the ports on the switch are available - is this correct?
if you connect a switch to one of ethernet ports on hub the others are still available for use
