I'm out of ethernet ports on my router, what do I do?

If your current router is out of ethernet ports on the back and you are trying to install a Mini, you will need to add a network switch (it's like a power strip for ethernet ports). This will allow you to additional ports for more hardwired devices. 

This TRENDnet 5-port switch is a great option from Amazon

If you don't want to install a switch, the other option is to purchase a router that is Router Limits enabled. You can see all the current options at the bottom of the pricing page under each manufacturer name.
