Exactly! That's the primary function of a switcher, to provide more LAN ports and distribute the network to many machines. Here you'll use it to extend the router LAN ports and provide room for more computers.

And it's done. Finally purchased a TP-Link TL-SF1008D - Welcome to TP-LINK. That was simple enough. Both PCs now on LAN connections. Really appreciate all the guidance guys
