Do I just buy a switch and connect it to my exisiting netgear router? 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.

Thanks

Yes, just get a network switch. No, the babdwidth will not be reduced.

Yep. Most new routers have a 4-port switch built in now. You just attach the switch to one of those ports and you'll be set.
