Re: Extra ports on Hub

Maybe a better router with 1Gb ports to use your hub in modem mode too.

Thank you - does it slow things down at all?

As already stated no, you won't 'see' any perceivable difference.

The one I linked to may appear cheap, however they are generally for home use devices, and it has a 10Gbps bandwidth so you should be ok... 😀

Re: Extra ports on Hub

Sorry if it’s a stupid question! But what does the setup look like? I looked at the info sheet you kindly sent and that shows nothing attached to a router - do you plug the Netgear device into the router and everything into it? Or do you still have some stuff plugged directly to the router and other stuff to Netgear??

Just plug one cable from the hub into a port on the switch.. then you can use the extra four ports on the switch for whatever you like..
