Connecting laptop directly to Hub 3.0 using ethernet
Hi all, noob here so bear with me pls.
I am trying to use my Hub 3.0 in modem mode. I assumed I could connect my TV and laptop directly to the modem using ethernet cables. However, once the Hub is in modem mode (the light turns magenta so I know it's working) there isn't an internet connection.
I've read in a couple other posts that I may need a router? I'm a bit lost now- can anyone explain what it is I need to do? I just want to get a TV and laptop connected to the internet without using WiFi.

Hi, modem mode deactivates Wifi and DCHP. The only active port will be the bottom one or Port4. You would need to connect your own router or DCHP switch to this port. To Deactivite wifi, log into hubs settings page Advanced Settings > Wireless > Wireless Signal, then disable 2.4 and 5 GHz broadcasts and apply settings. Take out of modem mode.
