All 4 LAN ports on your SOHO Router can be used as uplink ports. If you wanted to, you could connect 4 switches, one each to the LAN ports, and it would work just fine.

Why not use a switch instead of another router to expand available ports?

For instructions on how to connect a second router, click on my name above in my response and read my "how-to" guide titled, "‚ó¶Add a second Router to your LAN"

You'll want to pay attention to the scenario where you interconnect the two routers using the "LAN port to LAN port" method

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
