I'm using a Netcomm NB3300 256k four port ADSL router. For no apparent reason it's recently started only routing internet connections to whichever network cable is plugged into the first slot. The others won't light up or connect the computers. I've tried swapping the cables over and all the cables being used seem to work fine from the first slot, just not the others.
Help would be much appreciated.

There is a button labeled MDI/MDIX. The switch must be in the MDI position. The MDIX crosses the wiring allowing a hub or switch to be attached, to provide more ethernet ports.
If you needed more than 4 port you would set the button to MDIX and attach a hub to expand the capacity. You could do the same with a crossover cable and leaving the button in the MDI position.

Solution:The MDI/MDIX button must be in the MDIX position.

there's a switch on the back labelled 'X' and 'II'. I've tried it out in both positions and had no luck with either.

How many computer are attach to your LAN, and does one of the cable have the word Crossover or XOXO printed on the outside?
