How many Ethernet ports On Home Hub 2?

I presently use a Netgear router (which is great), but Plusnet have recommended I upgrade to a Home Hub 2.

I have two questions,

1) I have 4 ethernet cables coming out of my present router to devices (and one input from the fibre modem). Will Home Hub 2 be the same?

2) Is there a physical WiFi on/off button on the Home Hub 2 router?

 

Thanks.

1) No - there are only 3 accessible ethernet ports, the fourth is for a WAN connection used by the (rumoured) soon-to-be-launch FTTP service
2) No - there's only a WPS button. WiFi can be switched on / off via the GUI

It is worth mentioning you can use the Hub Two in modem only mode so you could just replace your existing  modem and leave everything else in place.

Unless the issue is with the router.

My  setup, 1 port to a 4 port powered Ethernet switch, feeding a TV, dvd player, and two humax S.T. boxes. 2nd port to PC.

3rd. port is free, not got round to connection NAS. The distance, router to TV 8 mts ONE cable. The only down thing is yet another electric brick!

Re: How many Ethernet ports On Home Hub 2?

Why did Plusnet suggest you upgrade? Are you having any particular issues?
I’d tend to think if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
