Yes - THIS is a bit cheaper

Currys/pcworld do one for around 6 quid as well. Works fine on mine.

So additional 6+ ports? Use one or more network gigabit switches. Random example 8-port gigabit £13+ amazon.co.uk/dp/…1S/

As OP has 150Mb Broadband using a 10/100 switch would restrict speed down to 100Mb on any devices connected downstream of that switch. OP needs to buy a gigabit switch

Fair enough. Not too clued up on that. Thanks for that.
