    i have 4 computer wired (already run and working with a wireless router) have a 5 computer that i want to bring online in another office the wire is run but my router is full.

    the wireless is for clients that come in to my office.

    i am looking to expand in the near future by adding a NAS drive and a network printer(wired and wireless available in the printer i want. i would like to get a wire one)

    my questions are should i get a
    1. switch and just add the extra stuff on it.
    2. new wireless router that has a storage link and for go a NAS and just take everything else to wireless

    I'd get a switch for the other stuff, but that's because I prefer a wired connection when its available. I've never felt 100% comfortable with relying on a wireless connection.

    I don't know what brand you have, but you should be able to plug another router in to the existing router and it will tree down.

    No, he wants a switch, not another router. There's no need to have a subnet on a four-port network.
