trouble connecting a ethernet switch to a router

I have no clues about computers, but I have netflix and my child wants to watch movies through the Wii. I brought the LAN adaptor and a ethernet switch but that is as far as I made it. Any help for the not so computer tech?

  1. You need to run an ethernet cable from your router to the Wii network adapter.
  2. My router doesn't have an extra ethernet plug and when I unplug the computer ethernet I lose my internet connection
  3. Then run the ethernet cable from the router to the switch and from the switch to the computer & Wii.

    Thanks, I will try that. I am an ethernet cable short right now.
