Probably a simple solution but here goes.
I have a standard 4 port + Wifi router, however with my tv, blu-ray, Home Cinema, Wii, Sky+ and hardwired home pc. How can I connect all to the router, is it as simple as purchasing a switch and connecting it. If so how do I go about it and can I use any port, Like, for example a netgear 8 way?
As far as I am aware and already covered, you cannot connect Sky + thro your router. Modern TVs have HMDI connection for Sky. Smart TVs , wii and BLU Ray can be connected to your router to provide internet and video streaming. and the 4 ethernet ports should be ample for this.
I prefer to use cable connections ie ethernet leads, which are available up to 50mtrs.
T dont like the signal loss useing homplugs which I find I dont get useing direct leads. WiFi again does give signal loss. Mine it turned off at the router hence no leaching and higher security
As mentioned earlier, All 4 in use, Sky =, TV, Blu -ray cinema system + Hardwired PC, Wii and 2 laptops wireless, PSP and Kindle wireless. THanks Secret-Squirrel, I will just put and 8 way from 1 port.
