Deco M4 & Virgin Media Router - Can I add a Switch to it?
I have a Virgin Media hub in modem mode - I allow the Decos to manage the network.
I was told this was better than changing the Decos to be switches and allow the Hub to manage the network.
However doing this blocks all but one ethernet port on the Hub, which connects to the Deco.
However, I now am finding I may need to add more wired things to the network.
Can I buy a simple switch and connect it to one of the ports on the back of the main Deco unit and then run other things from that?
Was thinking something similar to the TP-Link 5-port switch, but not sure if you can get unpowered versions?
Or should I put the Virgin Media hub back in normal mode and change the Decos to be switches?
I am a little afraid to change anything as it works fine as it is now but as I say, I may need to add two or three extra bits that could do with being wired instead of Wifi.
