OFL created the topic: Not enough ethernet sockets on my BT hub

So my problem is as follows, I have four connections on the back of my BT hub, so I can plug four computers into it. Up until a couple of weeks ago I didn't have any problems. However I now plug my sky television box into the hub to get more functions. So I've had to unplug one computer. I was thinking about getting some kind of wireless network adapter, however it would be much easier if I could somehow use some kind of adapter that allowed me to plug to computers into one socket on the back of the hub, is this possible in any way?

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

That's probably the best way to go, I have just ordered one :-)

me personally i would just buy a bigger network switch, i don't like the speed of most wireless controllers. i'll never have the issue of not enough connections as i own 2x 24 port switches :) they're in failover so if one switch dies, the other one just takes over :)
but that's just my "nerdyness", most people will do perfectly fine with a wireless access point.
