Orbi RBK23 AC2200- Need a solution for added ethernet ports at modem

I have the RBK23 router with 2 satellites.  My issue is that I need additional ethernet ports at the router.  This model only has one ethernet port.  Is there a device I could add to increase the quantity of ethernet ports between the modem and the router?

 

Thanks

I would add a Netgear ProSafe Gigabit switch, plug it into the Lan port of the router and you can connect Orbi satellites as well as other devices. The switch comes in various sizes and they are very cost effective.
