Windows 7: Split network connection questions

Split network connection questions

hi guys,

I have an ethernet cable coming from my router (in the lounge) and into my living room which currently connects directly to my media pc. I also have an internet TV that also has the capability to connect to the internet.

Now i simply want to split the cable into two, so that both devices can connect to my router simultaneously.

I know you can convert a router to act as a switch and i even have a spare 4 port router, but i want to hide the connection, so i need something small with 2 ports..NO MORE!

thanks!
