How to expand home network with a hub

  Rockarch 15:33 22 Sep 2009

An easy question for someone in the know.

I am running a small network with 3 pcs & a printer driver that take up all 4 ports on my router. I want to add a networked storage device so I can backup all 3 pcs to teh same thing (about time to have a proper backup system!!).
I have an old hub which has never been used (can't even remember why it was bought) - a Unex NexHub HD080 with no intructions. It has an 'uplink' input, a power input and then 8 ports. How do I connect it to the existing router which is an ordinary belkin wired/wireless router, so I can plug some other stuff into it?

Connect the output from one of Belkin ports to the input of the other hub.
