iNID - more i38hg's

Click for full size
The attachment is not a picture of my iNID, but the one on my house looks exactly the same. When I had uverse installed I ran two homerun cat5e cables to two parts of my house and the tech installed a i38hg to each one. The only difference between my install and the picture is that mine has a second blue/blue&white pair terminated to the lower green and red connector that goes to my second i38hg.

I have been toying with the idea of putting another i38hg in the basement and was wondering if I can just terminate another pair to one of the two open yellow and black connectors or whether for some reason they need to only be attached to the green and red ones which are now full.

Any thoughts? I'm thinking it shouldn't matter, but who knows.

Only the first line (r/g) will support the indoor unit i38hg, to add third device will need to either; 1) run a new line daisy chained from an existing jack or 2) tap into one the the two lines.
To the best of my knowledge each i38hg is leased at $6/month, there was a recent overall price increase on many items so this may have also changed.

Why in the world would you want more than one i38hg? They are not a good router and are only wireless G instead of N., There are certainly more better alternatives that will accomplish the same thing, work better and not have to be granted from AT&T.

Thanks for the responses. It's possible I will just run the external ethernet port to a switch (versus another i38hg) in the basement then I can just use a spare router. While the i38hg isn't a perfect device, I'm fairly satisfied with the performance of it and don't have any/many complaints about it.
