I have decided to move my wireless router from the basement to the 1st floor so it is closer to other PCs in the house. Part of my basement is unfinished which gives me the ability to run ethernet cables between the basement and the 1st floor. I have 3-4 devices (HTPC, xbox, ps3, projector, etc) in the basement that I would like to connect to the 1st floor router with ethernet cable. Instead of running all 3-4 cables separately to my router, I am looking for some kind of intermediary device that would ideally work as follows: (1) Connect 1st floor router to intermediate device in basement via only 1 ethernet cable to provide internet signal to that device (2) Connect my 3-4 basement devices to the intermediate device in the basement to receive internet. Not sure if I just need a network hub, switch, etc as the intermediate device since I really don't understand the differences well. BTW, I dug up an old Asante 10T hub from the 90s that still works. This thing looks ancient, but I wonder if it will get the job done for now until I order something better. I see 12 ports all lined up in the back. But its not clear too me where I plug in the ethernet cable from the router. On the front, I see a BNC and a AUI connector which I believe are legacy connectors. So, just wondering if this hub will work for now (will probably try it out later today) and what I should be looking to buy as a more permanent solution.
