I need a name to Google for.
I'm looking for a device that will accept one incoming ethernet cable and offer one or more outgoing ethernet connections AND a wifi access point.
What is that? A bridge/switch/accesspoint?
The scenario is: I currently have an ethernet cable running to my PC to provide internet access (via a modem-router upstairs) so instead I'd like to plug that cable into the unnamed device which would act as a switch to provide outgoing ethernet connections for my PC and print and also provide a wifi spot for phones, tablets etc.
