How do I connect a device via Ethernet cable to my router?

If you would like to connect devices to your router by Ethernet cable (ensuring the best quality connection), there are four ports to use to do this. 

If you need more, you may need to acquire an external switch. This will route one connection point into another four or more and these are readily available online. Do ensure the ports are rated for gigabit Ethernet. 

We are happy to advise or check into a unit you are considering buying and using. Just drop us a message to or give us a ring on 01865 591131 to discuss it.
