Thread: connect with network hub?

  1. #1

    Question connect with network hub?

    Hello,
    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...

    Code:
     |   |   |    ____     |   |   |   |   |  |   |
     |   |   |   |     |   |   |   |   |   |  |   |
    P1  P2  P3  P4     P1  P2  P3  P4  P5  P6 P7  P8 
         |                        |   
      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.
