More Ports

I've run out of ports on my Hub 1.

I'm looking at a USB powered network switch.

Does anyone know if the USB port on the Hub 1 can power such a device.

The answer to your question is no it can't. It's designed to interface with memory devices.

If you need more Ethernet ports then you need to add a switch. This is an example: https://www.amazon.co.uk/NETGEAR-GS205-100UKS-Gigabit-Ethernet-Desktop/dp/B00AYRZYG4/ref=sr_1_1_sspa...

This will use one of your router ports but give you an additional four from the switch.

Re: More Ports

I've already got a switch lined up - just wanted to know if I need to make sure I have a spare plug near the router so I can power it.

Thanks
