TG582N - Switch/Hub for more network ports

Hi all,
I am using all 4 ports on my TG582N and have a NAS to add on. What equipment would I need to connect to the TG582N to add ports and do I need to do any extra configuration on the router (through telnet?)?
Cheers,
MM

Hi
You need a switch and a patch cable, no config needed just connect the switch to the router with the patch cable then plug your nas into the switch, if your nas and other networked items are gigabit enabled, then buy a gigabit switch and connect all gigabit enabled devices to the switch.

That's pretty good for £11.
As previously advised you really just need to connect it to your router and away you go.
