How Many Ports On A D-Link DI-614+ (Rev B)?

    I have one of the subject routers on my home network and have what is
    probably a dumb question. How many ports does it have? I know the
    simple answer is 4, but it gets more complicated. This particular
    router has a WAN connector on the back, as well as 4 RJ-45 LAN
    connectors. However, even with all 4 LAN connectors in use, I can
    still use my laptop and upstairs computer on wireless connections
    (they seem to work flawlessly). Does this mean the router will
    support 4 wired AND 4 wireless connections? It seems that way to me,
    but I just wanted to make sure I'm not missing something. Are there
    any problems/limitations with this setup?

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Hi

    I Thnik it works like this.

    You can connect 4 wired computers (since there are 4 ports).

    But as far as wireless connection, I don't think there is any limit.

    This is as far as I know.

    I just went thru the settings on mine and that is what it appears.
    4 wired or more if you use a hub, and unlimited wireless.
    Of course the total cannot exceed the type of network you are on, a
    Class C where you can only change the last 4 numbers, like most home
    ones, is 253.

    Michael-

    Thanks for the info; that's kind of what I expected. I can go to the
    setup screen and see all 6 computers (4 wired, 2 wireless), each with
    their own IP. They all seem to work correctly, so that's what I'm
    really concerned about.
