Majic Jack router

I just bought a Magic Jack Plus and it needs an ethernet cable to my router. Trouble is, my router has only one ethernet port, and I am using that one to send DSL internet into my computer.
Do I need to buy another router just for Magic Jack? Also my computer has only one ethernet port.

    You don't need a router for that. Buy a cheap 4 or 5 port switch -- attach the router output to the switch along with your computer. HERE is an example of one that would work well.

  4. Realbest's answer is really cool but having a router with only one LAN port is considered to be an old trend.
