No you can't do that.
What do you have on all the ports? If you have something basic like a printer or something non computer that don't have gigabit I would suggest just unplugging it, plugging in the MicroCell and then plugging that device into the MicroCell.
If not you can get a basic network switch really cheap. If your router Gigabit or 100Mbit?
If Gigabit, I use 8 port version of this switch (Trendnet) and it's working great and is on sale for $24.99
If you have a 100Mbit you can get these for only $9.99, but I would recommend the Gigabit if you can afford it:

Get an Ethernet "switch." They cam be had as cheap as $20. Thi will add another 4 ports (for a 5 port switch.) You simply daisy chain one port of the switch to one of your router ports. Connect the Microcell to one of the router ports directly and move something else off on to the new switch (for best performance.)
You'll need to get another network cable to uplink the switch to the router.
Edit:Whoops. Sorry. Ed already answered, sorry. I missed that as I'm reading on a mobile screen.
