Just had gigaclear installed and have a linksys router with a node. Node is connected via wifi and signal is week so thinking best to run an ethernet cable from the router to the node, but router only has 1 ethernet port available which is used by my hive bridge.

Is a splitter and running an ethernet cable the best solution? Running the cable won't be a problem.

Thanks

    Any modern switch (1 gbps Ethernet ports) will be ok for that speed. (edited)

    I use one for these. Turns 1 Ethernet port in to 4 Ethernet ports

    No. A splitter for ethernet allows a single 8 wire cable to carry two fast ethernet (100Mbps) signals using four wires each.

    What you need is a network switch, also sometimes called a hub.

    True, although you should have said "What you need is a network switch, also sometimes (incorrectly) called a hub."
