Need additional ports than what my existing wireless router provides.

I was just assuming I connect the switch to one of the existing RJ45 ports on the router. Will the bandwith be reduced for the devices connected via the switch Sorry for the dumb question.

You just attach the switch to one of those ports and you'll be set. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
