How to connect a laptop to hub with cross over cable

I want to transfer data between laptop and hub using ethernet cable how do I set this up please. Iam not to technical and want faster transfer as my wireless router is pants :smiley:

Just connect a ethernet crossover cable from your laptop’s ethernet port to the hub’s ethernet port. Then in the hub, go to setup>network setting>network setup and choose wired. Then again in network settings turn on network share server. And there you go, you can access the hub’s hard drive through your laptop in network.

I dont seem to get any lights when connecting ethernet to laptop

You must use a ‘special’ crossover cable for it to work.
