Default Router no more slots left.

I have a linksys router, and all four slots are being used by computers.

I have an extra computer that I want to stick in there but there are no slots left.

What do I do?

I'm not going wireless so how do I add another router extension?

Or whatever you call it.

Get back to me soon please.

buy a hub or switch.
Unplug 1 Comp from your router so there is a slot empty.
Plug the hub or switch into that empty slot.
Plug whatever you want into hub or switch

Send a message via AIM to Jayce

Would you be unable to do that, but with a 2nd router?

AKA router one uses port 1, 2, 3 for computers. Port 4 is for 2nd router. Computer 4 is plugged into 2nd router.

Would that work? Or are you required to have a hub or switch?
There's no place like /home.
