Wireless Receiver hook up?

I have 6 TV's hooked up via cable or ethernet cable to my RG.  Everything works great.  I also have voice and internet to the RG.  I'm installing a new Sony XBR TV in my formal living area so I ordered a wireless receiver.  I haven't even opened the box yet.  I was talking to my IT girl and she said that the wireless receiver requires something to plug into the RG.  All of my ports are full, how will this work?

Yes, there is a wireless access point (WAP) that must be plugged into the RG to connect to the wireless receiver.  You can use a switch to expand the number of ports available.  The switch that the U-verse technicians use during installs is the Netgear GS108.  You should be able to buy a switch locally.

Thanks, that's great info.  I'll buy the switch tonight as I'm going to hook up tomorrow.
