OK, I have at home here a Telstra modem, 2 wire. Its a combo jobby that has Four ports at the rear ( out port) and is also wireless.
The current set up has the main line feed into it ( seperate port) and from there we have the Four ports feeding via patch cables to the following.
One goes to the Main PC here in the study, where the Modem sits, the other three patch into a wal plate of 5 x RJ45 sockets. Those goe to FIVE locations around the house. My issue is, I need more FEED out ports, not just wireless which is a result of having a few of my sons mates over playng MW2 last night, we ran out of bloody ports.
SO the Q is, Can I plug in a router or Patch Panel of some sort into one of the Feed out ports, that then split into say another four ports, giving me 4 plus the other three. If so, what sorta blooy set up do i get, I guess it requires power, but will it require anything else.
