Probably won't matter, not sure if only 1 port is activated when in bridge mode. If so, it is likely to be either port1 or port4

@rizla13 

Does the Business Smart Hub have a phone socket for Digital Voice on it like the Residential one?

If it does, then I wonder if BT Digital Voice will work if the hub is in modem only mode, as that would provide a solution to those people who want to use their own router with DV.

And if BT gave the option to enable modem mode on the SH2, that that would keep a lot of people happy.

You don't use a WAN port, that would be if you were using the hub as a router with a separate modem. However, port 4 may be the LAN port that is active when in modem mode.
