Alcatel 7368 ONT on the wall with my router pluuged into LAN1 on the ONT. Internet working fine for devices connected to/through my router.
Can I plug other devices into the LAN[2-4] ports on the ONT so they can also have 'net access? (or communicate between themselves?)

Thanks, that's what I anticipated.

With a prior ONT I used, it only required one device to establish the ISP connection and then the other ethernet ports on the ONT were also activated.

A Huawei device, if memory serves me right. It was a few years ago now.
