I have three computers (win 7on one and two on xp)
My hook up is Modem to a Router. (Linksys 4 port)
It comes out of my router to a 6 port expansion board where is wired to different room”s of my house. Using all 6 ports. Since I only have outlets ports from my router,It feeds 4 ports on my expansion board. Everything works find like it is suppose to.
Now comes my problem, I had my TV system upgraded to HD.(Two new HD receivers) Each one has a Ethernet connection to download movies from the dish network to my HD DVR Receiver. I got one receiver hooked up and working, but I am out of ports on my router as it is only a four port router.
Three computers and one DVR HD Receiver,so I am one port short. What do I do add a Access point or switch? or can a 5 port router.
Anyone has any info on who has them ( makes,model #)
I do not know anything about a switch or access point. I know wireless is not an option (to many cards to buy,installing, locking down,)
Thanks any info you may offer John
