    I am a beginner, so I apologize for my questions in advance.

    I have a Lantronix LMR16TC mini 10base-t repeater, and I would like to use it in my home network. I have a cable modem, and would like to just run the cable from the modem to the lantronix, then from the various ports on the lantronix to the distribution hub that connects to the wall ports in my house. The house is wired with cat5e, all home run back to one location. I have tried this, but get only one working port.

    I downloaded the install guide for this unit, but it is not helpful for someone with my limited understanding.

    Can someone tell me if this device can be used in this way, or if I need to use something else?

    Thanks,

    You do realize what a repeater is used for, right? I doubt you have the need for this repeater. Also, if your modem doesn't function as a router, you'll have to get one to make more than one device share the same public IP.

    no, i guess i don't. i was told it could be used like a hub or switch.

    i am planning on getting a wireless router as well, but was trying to avoid having to buy one with so many ports. i thought the lantronix could split the wired internet connection throughout my house.
