Hi All, I am pondering on getting BT Broadband and as I have 3 pc's networking perfectly via a netgear 5 port hub I would like to share the internet connection, BT supply a router but I note that it only has one ethernet connection am I correct in assuming that I can connect this to my network hub to "do the business" any comments would be very welcome before I commit myself to this.Thanks.

As long as the hub has an uplink port it will work ok. The only issue will be on the network side as you have it networked already, probably with assigned IP addresses, you would then have to decide whether to configure the router to suit or the PCs to allow the router to assign IP addresses.
