|I am a relative newbie to home networking. And this is my first post here.|
Right now I have a Motorola SBG900 Surfboard Gateway (a combination Cable modem/wireless router) connected to my main Personal Computer. Comcast is my Internet Provider.
I also have a Belkin F5D7330 Wireless Ethernet Bridge. It has ONE LAN port only.
In another room I have 3 Internet capable devices: A Blu-Ray player, an LCD HDTV, and a Direct TV HDVR.
I can connect any ONE of the three devices to the Belkin and the wireless internet connection works.
But I don't want to keep having to plug and unplug the cables into the Belkin each time I want connect to the Internet with a different device.
What do I need to do have all 3 devices connected?
I was thinking I would need a 5 port Ethernet Switch and just plug in the Belkin and the 3 devices.
Would that work or do I instead need to use a 2nd Wireless Router, or an Access Point, or a different Bridge? Or something else?
I am definitely confused here and I would rather not purchase gear that has no chance of working.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
