Hey gollumsexslave! Unfortunately C.A.S.T. can't pass through ethernet hubs nor switches because it's not ethernet/digital signals. We are just using the copper of the cable and sending analogue signals down it. If you were to connect it to a hub/switch, that hub/switch is going to have a bad time. It will most certainly fry it unless it's a high-end switch with a protection circuit on the Ethernet input. But even with the protection circuit, there's no way it will pass the audio.
