I have a similar switch in the living room feeding all devices. It’s connected to the router using powerline adapters and is so much better than WiFi.

So you can't just connect it directly to the router? I ask due to you mentioning power line kits.

You can connect directly to the router with no problem. I only use powerline adapters as I don’t want to run cables from the router to the switch.

Thanks my router is beside the TV anyway so it would be useful for better managing my collection of Ethernet cables and devices

A hub could be viewed as an extension device, as it sends any data it receives to every device on the network at its level.
Think of a switch if anything, to be a form of smart extension, which will only send data to the equipment on the network that the data is intended for.

Your router is the connection to the Wide area network (internet and uses IP`s) where as a switch just deals with your local area network (home network and uses mac addresses). Hubs are just dumb distribution points on the LAN at the level it is inserted.

Hope that simplifies it a bit for you.
