      Ethernet switch with sky's latest n router

      I have my router downstairs at the mo plugged into 3 computers for my home recording studio.

      I ned to get an extra 2 ethernet ports upstairs for my xbox, sky hd and also apple tv.

      i need some ideas on what is the best way to do this.

      I really want 3 ethernet ports instead of wireless because of speed and quality of streaming etc. I also need to keep the 3 computers plugged in by ethernet downstairs for the same reason.

      will i be able to use a ethernet switch / hub by cable from one of the sky router's ports upstairs to a switch.

      please help

      thanks in advance

      Yes! Just use a standard network cable to link one port on the Sky router to a switch and connect everything else to the switch.

      8 port gigabit switch on Amazon (will give you 7 usable as one port will be connected to the Sky router) is around 27. 5 port is around 17.
      BT Infinity 2 FTTC (19/09/2012) - Sync: 52 Mbps / 9 Mbps - (Would consider Sky if static IP available).
