I have a Fios and just hooked up a Belkin router to the stock Actiontec, to get more range and speed. I used up all the ports and need more--which device do I need to get to add more ports? I've looked online, but I'm still not sure. Thanks

You need a hub or a switch (they are for your purposes the same).

e.g.
Netgear FS105 Prosafe 5 Port Fast Ethernet Unmanaged Switch: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

No, you can use any reputable brand. They are all compatible.
