Hi guys, great forum

I've recently signed up to Xtra broadband (work for Telecom retail). The speeds are great and I'm pretty happy.

However (as there usually is with Technology and me)

Both my flatmate and myself want to be able to access the net at the same time.
He has a 4 port modem, but it's not D-Link. We can access via ONE computer at a time through his DSL-504T, obviously due to it being a single port modem, but cannot access jack sh*t with his 4 port modem, either whilst both connected to it or just one of us. We have the LAN ip address for the 4 port modem, however it is a 10.0.0.x number, rather than a 10.1.1.x number...Is that an issue?

I know I could just get a switch or even utilise the D-Link via RJ45 but it seems silly seeing as I have a perfectly good 4 port modem here, plus it'll be tidier.

Any advice? Sorry if it was a bit vague, at work atm, so don't have model codes etc

Any advice appreciated

Is the 4 port modem a router also? You could disable the dhcp server and use it as a switch.

Yeah it is, and yeah I know, but I don't have any extra RJ45 cable, ahahaha. Plus, want to avoid that for tidiness sake

Also worth mentioning is that I am able to get the 100mbps bubble, and "limited or no connectivity" bubble
