Setting up multiple Ethernet access points

I need to have 7 individual ethernet outlets on my home network for rooms, living room etc. My router has 4 ports on it. What should I do to get the additional 3 outputs I need? Can I just plug a switch into my router for the additional ones I need? Or do I need a router with additional ports?

You just need to plug in another switch.

Thank you. Will it just be a plug in and surf the internet connection? I mean, do I need to adjust any settings or deal with IP addressing if all ports are attempting to access at the same time?

Just plug in and go, simple.
