My broadband Internet router does not have any spare Ethernet connections that I can plug my Network OWL into

You can create additional Ethernet ports by purchasing a Network Switch such as the NETGEAR FS605 ( - this provides 5 ports.
You will also need an additional short Ethernet cable (Cat5 patch cable).
  • Remove one of the existing Ethernet cables from the existing (fully loaded) router and plug this into any of the ports on your new Network Switch.
  • Now plug the new Ethernet cable between this spare port and one of the other ports on the Network Switch.
  • You now have 3 spare usable ports available on the Network Switch - simply plug your Network OWL into one of them.
Note the Network Switch must be powered.
