    I've got a four port router (linksys)working with a cable modem. Will I be able to expand my router with a simple ethernet hub?
    I have one leftover from before I got the router.

    Yep, just plug connect the hub to an uplink port on the router, or a regular port on the router to an uplink port on the hub, or if neither have an uplink port then connect them with a CAT 5 Crossover cable.

    Just a note - if u use the uplink port on the linksys - you can't use port 1 as well. They are actually the same port - wired X and II
