Connect second computer

Message 1 of 2

My daughter is home form college for the summer and would like to connect to the internet with her macbook pro laptop. How can I do this? We have a westell 6100f modem. Have talked to Verizon support and have had a hard time understanding them both technical and english.

Do you have a Ethernet Hub/Switch or a second router?

The reason I ask is because...

Unless I am mistaken, the westell 6100f has only one LAN port and USB. And you can not use both the USB and the ethernet ports at the same time.
