In my Internet connection I am using a hub.  It has total 5 ports.

1port is for downlink and other 4 for downlink but downlink port turned off yesterday because of a thunder storm.  Other 4 ports are working and showing the light.

So is there anyway can I can use one port  for downlink port from those 4 ports?

Yes, you can use any of the ports as a downlink. I want to tell you something about hub.

How a hub is working in computer networks.  It only receive signals at one port and then broadcasts that signal to all the outlet ports.  For example, you have connected your incoming port at no 1 and all outgoing cables are inserted into 2 3 4 5 ports.  The hub receives the signal from port no 1 and then broadcasts these signals on all others ports that are numbered as 2 3 4 5.  So if your port number on is download, you can connect your incoming cable with port no 2 and connect all the remaining with 3 4 5.  It will work properly as it was working before but the only problem is you will have to reduce on connections.

Thanks

All ports of a hub can be use for down link except the connector use for modem. This gives Internet access to each and every computer attached to it. Hub uses Mac address coming straight from the Internet Service Provider's server and is assigned to the devices attached to it. All 5 down link ports should be accessible and should give you Internet service.

Contact your ISP and ask how many Mac/ IP address are provisioned. They might reduce the IP address they are giving to your network that's why the other 4 ports are inaccessible. However, if you are only subscribed to only 1 IP Address, then using Hub might not work. The work around with this scenario is to install a router first then Hub or a switch. The problem is, you'll get slower Internet speed because it'll divide the bandwidth usage to each computer attach.
