Or you could just test it - assuming that you have another device that can make use of a LAN jack.
That's precisely what made me post this thread. One of the ports of the port replicator is connected to the cablemodem (internet access) and I tried connecting the other port to the router/switch that in turn connects me to the NAS, but I was unable to access the NAS (by opening the browser, typing its IP address, etc). On the other hand, if I unplug the cable that connects to the cablemodem and instead connect it to the NAS it will establish the connection successfully. It seems I can only use one port (either of them) only, but not both simultaneously, which in turn prompted me to ask what's the point of a 2nd port if it's unusable. I can always call Sony Support and ask them, but it's a pain in the neck as usually their Support staff is not qualified and they only read the User Manual to answer your questions.
