Using a RPi4 as a hub: Advice needed.
Posted: Fri Feb 21, 2020 10:05 pm
Hello... I have a now redundant RPi4 that I hope I can salvage and make use of. I was wondering if it was possible to use it as a hub where I can connect 4 external USB devices to it and access those devices from a Windows 10 laptop via the Ethernet ports on both RPi4 and the laptop by cable? Rationale is the distance is approx 10m from laptop to RPi, and Ethernet would be faster than either USB connectivity or WiFi? I'm sure this has been asked before but Google hasn't been forthcoming with direct hits. Thanks in advance. Jaq
