Thanks! Will look for this item..
Glad you're up and going - but I'd hate having a bad port - in my old hacker world we'd call that an Easter Egg (something to stumble over again in the future).
As I was reading the thread, I recall my router has the ability to disable/enable various hard ware ports. You might want to check that in case the 'bad' port is simply disabled.
I also suggest grabbing a 5 port hub and dangling that in between so you have more ports for the future! One can never have too many ports!
You are very right!
And thanks for this good advice regarding the router port ( never thought about that before - will check it out )
Also, will definitely get additional hub for more ports - never too many as you say!
