Tp link router and plusnet

Hello,

I’ve got a tp-link router (see image below). I’m not sure what this is and how it connects with plusnet. I’ve got Ethernet ports around the house. I tried plugging in a cable from plusnet to tp-link (not shown in image below), then say in the living room I’ve connected the tv to the Ethernet port in the same room - thinking that might work. Any ideas?

Re: Tp link router and plusnet

Hi
I would guess the TP Link is an ethernet switch, which should allow you to extend the Plusnet routers ethernet around the house.
Can you find a model number on the TP Link?
I guess it should lift up and unhook from the wall.
The model number is usually on the base of the unit.

That's not a router, its just an 8 port network switch. Im assuming that the cables from it feed ports around the house. There should be a single cable from one of the LAN ports on the PlusNet Hub one, to one of the ports on the TP Link switch. That will then allow internet connection from any of the port around the house.
