How to add additional ethernet ports?

I need one more ethernet port than the Motorola NGV510 supplies. What device can add more ports? Is that an "unmanaged" switch or just another router? I don't care if I lose some speed on this last connection.

Mark2014 - Yes, an unmanaged switch is a good choice. This one have been recommended - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00006RVPW/ref=asc_df_B00006RVPW1644937?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=hyprod-20&li...

Re: How to add additional ethernet ports?

Thanks Mark. Does one simply connect an ethernet cable from one of the ports on the modem to the hub, then the additional ports will be available from there? I was looking for some instruction on how to use the Netgear switch for adding additional ports to my home network.
