I have one of that model, and if you reset to factory defaults it should 
act as a dumb switch. There are some options that could be set that would
interfere with operation (flow control, port negotiation, etc) but I am
confident that none are set in the factory default configuration. (Stick a 
pin in the hole while power cycling).
