      Question I need more ports on my router

      Hi fellas.
      I have a sky 4 port router but I need a one with more ports (8 minimum).

      Can I use a switch before the router or do sky have any routers with more ports?

      Cheers

      you can stick on a cheap switch onto the router and it should work no problems (the router is actually a combined modem,router and switch anyways)

      There are tons of switches on Ebay for under a tenner.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!
