I wonder if it is possible to connect the wl500w with a lan-hub...
the lan-ports are to few for my lan... any ideas or suggestions how this could work?

is the wl500w ready for cascading?

Maybe it could look like this...

WL500W e.g. 8-port Hub

I dont have a hub, so i can not try :-(

Or how do you handle the problem, if you need more lan-ports?

if I understand it right, you want to use the wl500w to assign dhcp ip-adresses?

then, just simply plug in a cable in the switch and the other and on the LAN port (not wan) of the router:)

yes, it's that easy;)

A network switch would be preferrable to a hub, because using a hub can cause your network traffic to collide. Switches don't have that problem. Besides, you'd probably have a real hard time to even find hubs nowadays.
