Can I use with Magic Jack an ethernet splitter so it will stay connected only to ethernet and not use USB when I am on the internet? My Magic Jack feels very warm to touch on ethernet to power source? Is this normal?

Thanks,

Audrey

Network Technician: TechGrant, System Administrator replied 5 years ago
Well using a splitter normally isnt a good idea, not sure on your current setup with it, but there is two ways of having it connected. Straight to the PC connected via USB or take it from the Router/Switch ethernet port and the USB is plugged into the powersource while a phone is then connected to the Magic Jack, that is recommended so you dont need to have it connected to the computer while surfing the internet

This method is shown here:

That white box underneath can be disregarded you can plug directly into a the router but my point was for the magic jack in general.

Yes it will run little warm when plugged in using the AC source but if it is getting too hot that isnt normal. Thanks!

I have my interbet service via Charter communications with a router box which has only one ethernet out which must be connecyed to my computer ethernet in for me to have internet service. Therefore I can not connect that outgoing ethernet directly to my magic jack and be on the internet. I have been using the USB with magicjack while I am on the internet which works fine.

I was just looking for a way to not have to disconnect and change when on and off the internet.

I did see a router box at walmart that had one incoming ethernet port with 4 outgoing ethernet ports but I am not sure this would work with Charter Comminications system

My MJ is not hot just warmer than I am used to.

Thanks,

Audrey

Yes that is what you will need a router with the extra 4 ports. It will provide you with what I mentioned above to make it work together and seamless. The router is normally a very straightforward setup out of the box. I hope I have answered your questions, if so please ACCEPT my answer if not please let me know.
