I’m a bit stuck here as it’s a simple thing to do, but I have never had to do it.
I have a Sky router (wired to fibre box by one ethernet port). It’s next to all my listed kit.
This leaves 3 spare ports.
I use more than three things and need more ports. Some of the kit can use Wi-fi as it rarely needs a connection. The stuff that handles lots of data I prefer hard wire even though it has Wi-fi (eg Sky Q).
Denon home cinema amp (Wi-fi)
Sky q (Ethernet)
Smart telly (Wi-fi)
Nvidia Shield (Ethernet)
Aurender (will need Ethernet)
I need at least one more port for the Aurender, so I could use splitter for the sky q/shield as I only ever watch tv via one at once (shield has better options for Netflix etc. ).
Could use Wi-fi for sky?
Or do I buy a switch (recommendations)?
If I did buy a switch do I still prioritise some devices direct to the router, or just load the switch and plug it in to one of the three ports?
Thanks for any help…
(Should add my Wi-fi is 60 to 70 but I have this preconception it’s not as good as hard wire!).
