[Amazon.ca] TP-Link 5 Port Gigabit Ethernet Network Switch - $16.99

Not a huge sale, nut a cheap option for a switch if you need to keep everything on the same home network. Old router will work to, but then that makes its own network, so everything wont talk with each other, unless you want to dive deep into it.

Not sure if there are cheaper or better options, but the reviews seem pretty good, and the slim line design would make it easy to hide for a entertainment centre

I'd probably go for the 8 port which is also on sale:

Using 8 ports between 2 5 port units. always a clutter of wires...

And because of the current situation, we have no idea when this will ship. My last item took more than 3 weeks to arrive...

Never saw that, the 8 port is on sale to. Extra $6 for 3 more ports, is probably a better option to future proof. Everything these days for home entertainment is connect to the Internet.

Thanks for pointing that out

You are welcome. Bought the 8 port to try to unclutter the wires. I can always keep the 5 ports for someone else or use them if I add even more equipment...

This switch was $19.99 recently. I was planning to buy one the first time I needed an add-on item.

IM thinking most would use this internally in the house to extend their ISP modems 4 LAN ports, to all the devices that work better on cable than wireless. So they only have to run one cable to an area
