I just unpacked the Maestro and 6500, connected then with the CAT-5 and connected the MIC, phones, and key directly to my 6500.  It all works great.  The problem is that the only CAT-5 connection on the 6500 is no longer available for connecting to my computer for N1MM+ access and keying.  Is there a way to connect the 6500 directly to both without adding a hub (use the USB ports???).

Exactly, use a switch. You will want to have a DHCP server in the network reserving addresses for each unit, or manually assign IP addresses, though. Makes life easier.
