Ethernet expansion slots on my netgear11?

I bought a netgear C6250 in Dec 2017 and love it.  Problem is it has 2 slots in the back for ethernet cords.  I use one for the internet and one for my VOIP home phone with OOMA. 

 

I need to expand the ethernet slots so I can keep my printer plugged in for updates.  (Printer is not wireless and wireless adapter is discontinued).  Is this possible and if so where do I buy the port expansion for the router.

 

Thanks.

I am not great with tech stuff, one other question.  If I got either the 5 or the 8 slot does everything I need come in the box or do I need other connector cords/cables?

 

Thanks again, you're a lifesaver.

It should have a power cord/supply. 

the ethernet cords, you'd need to supply.

Will a Neargear GS 305 be compatable with my netgear C6250?

   Should be.  Just like every other gigabit/s-capable unmanaged
Ethernet switch.

 

   Just don't get some fancier product whose model number has a suffix
(other than one like "v2" or "v3").  Like, say, GS305E, or GS305EP, or
GS305P, and so on.  You don't need the additional features and
complexity.
