That is what a network switch does and why Dave suggested it :-).

Take a look at this article. A switch is what you want. One office that I do a little work for has one router and three 8 port switches.

It looks perfect for what I want! The article explained what a switch is, but how does it connect? Does it use just one ethernet cable from the router, and expand the slot selection?

Also, a little off-topic, will it affect the speed of the network data? My Synology NAS drive has recently decided the connection is too slow, and media files transmitted downstairs are arriving too slow, resulting in jerky playback - will this improve that or is there another problem?

I really do appreciate all the help everyone's given - you've been really great thank you so much :-)

Yes. See page 3 of this PDF manual.

I'm not sure if it will help to plug certain devices into the switch versus the router, you can try it and see. I've never had to deal with video over a LAN. I mostly deal with small office stuff. Start a new topic on the speed issue and see if someone else knows. :-)

You're all wonderful people! Is there a switch on eBay that I can buy here in the UK? Does it matter what make I use, or should I stick with a Netgear switch to match my Netgear router?

It does not matter what brand as long as it has a good reputation.

Be sure to check the manufacturer's website and/or download the manual to be sure that the device really is gigabit rated.
