    just got new Sky Hub with only 2 Ethernet plugs!!

    I have 4 cables in my old Sky hub so what's the best solution? Why on earth would Sky reduce the amount of ports to 2 from 4?

    ​That'd take disabling of the IP server with in the slave router (amongst other things). Given the basic nature of the question by the OP, the setup might be asking too much.

    Just use your old router as a switch

    ​You might have come across as clever if you'd typed that right.

    If using old router as a switch by connecting it to one of the new router ports remember to go into settings of the old router and disable DHCP....

    Personally I'd just pick up a cheap gigabit switch
