Networking Help

My wireless "N" router, hooked to my comcast cable modem, also has 4 wired ports, which is not enough. I need to get more wired ports...can I add another wired router to the existing router? If so how?

One of my merchants had to do this.  They plugged a new router into an existing one because they needed to add a number of credit card machines.  I forgot what order they had to do it in, but they had to reset everything in a certain sequence.  Sorry I can't be more spacific as I am not a techy guy, but I'm sure you can do it.

You can get an ethernet hub for this. Usually these have 4 ports. They are cheaper and nothing to configure.

Do I plug the ethernet hub into the wireless router or the wireless router into the hub?

ethernet hub into the router - this will be a powered hub that will amplify your signal across distances of wire as well :)

Ok, so I'm looking at hubs...my network is Dual "N" or 300MPS (the wireless router) so if what am I looking for if I want  to plug my Internet cameras into it "G" is too slow for the FPS...   <BTW> thanks here!! I also have a Network extender that I have absolutely no clue how to get the wireless cameras to "talk to it"...

This is what I did to connect a regular 8 port router with a wireless router.  I guess that you would just substitute the wireless for another router.  Good Luck

Glad you got it as I was too late. Switch is the way to do it. A Hub just shares the bandwidth from the router port across the ports of the hub where a switch switches the entire bandwidth across each of the ports. Either way is kind of ok but there is a good way and an ok way to do it and the switch is the good way.Putting the routers back to back accomplishes the same thing as a router and switch but you over complicate it by having the address changes.
