BT Total Broadband Hub

Hopefully some of you who have already obtained the above product may be able to answer the following as BT don't appear to be able to tell me!

How many ethernet wired connections does the BT Total Broadband Hub have?

Is the hub actually a switch or just a hub?

Can the user increase the security of the wireless to 128 bit WEP and or WPA?

These products are as new to the rest of us as they are to you. I have yet to see one in order to work out the finer points of its configuration. What I can say is that it is much more than a hub in the proper sense of the word. BT [perhaps slightly misleadingly] uses the word "hub" to emphasise its position as the centre of a home network. Marketing speak.

It gives a fairly comprehensive reveiw.

Hmm.... I noticed no mention of WPA2, which means no ratification from the Wifi Alliance. Not very impressive at all for a brand new product.
