I have just started with Sky and need to be able to add switches to extend the amount of items I can use on my network. I don not want to use the wireless route and there is only 4 LAN Ports on the Sky Hub. I believe as the Hub is a combined Modem / Router I will need to use switches and pension my 2 routers off for 12 months. Can anyone out there give me some help with this matter please? All help greatly appreciated. Joe

Get yourself a switch. A 5 port Tenda one is about £16 and it is Gb as well. Simply connect the switch to a port on your router with a network cable and connect whatever else you want to the switch.
