Riveting

I could rant about the failures of ObamaCare and offer up a slop bucket of I Told You So. But you are already on board that train. In reality I have a big old bag of nothin' to offer you today. Perhaps something will occur to me later, but I doubt it. You are not interested in my tales of window coverings and decorating.  Hell, I am bored by it all at this point.

say, you tech savvy readers might help me out. Is there such a thing as an ethernet hub, or a multiplug for an ethernet cable?  My modem needs one more port to connect everything at once. I can find out by a quick internet search or a trip to Radio Shack/Best Buy/Frye's. I just have not started looking for answers yet since the problem only came up this morning when I tried to connect the ancient steam powered desktop dinosaur to the interwebz.

What you need is an Ethernet switch, like <a href="http://amzn.com/B0000BVYT3>this</a> for instance. Plug the cable coming from the modem into it and then you have four handy Ethernet jacks. If four isn't enough, they make these in 8-port and 16-port variants, too. You just have to be sure that you have a router in the system (maybe your modem has a router built in, I don't know).
