    I have just sent my brother my old Alcatel Speed Touch 510 router, but
    have now found that he has a cable modem and not standard ADSL. Does
    anyone know if he can configure this speed touch router as a
    switch/hub for use with his cable modem, or does he need to go out and
    buy a new switch/hub?

    a switch/hub

    If he is with NTL you still need a router (sometimes known as a
    Broadband Router), not a switch or a hub.

    NTL only supply one ISP & even if your CM can be configured to be a DHCP
    server, they cripple that with the firmware they install.
