Question: Switches for the Orbi system?

Hello. I have a question for one of the Netgear experts. If I'm planning on plugging several devices (two desktops and modem to the router..... and then TV & Blu-ray to the Satellite) into the ethernet ports of the Orbi, would switches be beneficial (i.e. plugging aforementioned devices into the switches prior to connecting to the Orbi)...... or would this be an unnecessary step with the Orbi system? Thank you for answering.

PS - To clarify - I realize there are enough ethernet ports on the Orbi system to get the job done, but would switches make the Orbi system more efficient - or would this be entirely unnecessary with this particular wireless system?

Hello PDIGS44

 

It would be unnecessary unless you plan on adding more devices later on.
