Mesh Network and ethernet links

Hi,

Like others I have purchased a Mesh Network, installed it and it's working well. Now, following advice read, I want to switch my Hub to Modem mode. However, I've also read that you should then only have the ethernet connection from the Hub to the Mesh network. I currently utilise two other ethernet connections on the Hub, one to my Tivo Box and one to my TV so my question is if I switch to Modem mode will they no longer work? There is only spare ethernet port on my Mesh Network.

Many thanks

You use a gigabit network switch to provide additional ports. See my sig for an example of such a switch.
