...unless your router only has 1 port ...and you only need 1 or 2 more ports near your router ...then you don't need a switch/hub ...just this thing

Just curious cuz I'm new to this kind of device, is this basically like a magic jack for your router so you can get a direct lan connection to your device instead of an extender? For example, I live in an old mobile home park and I've paid AT&T for their 3.o services for years and then finally realized they couldn't provide that speed so they reimbursed me for 2 years and have had me on the 1.5 for the past 4 years. However, I've continued to have problems when multiple devices are connected usually only 2, especially when my son is streaming video on our living room TV. I recently had them out again for the 100th time and the worker was honest enough to explain that the wiring through the whole park is so old that it can't even obtain a 1.5 steady connection. Thankfully I have unlimited data and mobile hotspot on my phone so I'm constantly switching over which honesty is much faster even when throttling kicks in at 10GB. SO, I'm just wondering if this would at least give me a more stable, not faster, connection because my home is 40+ years old and made of metal so the wireless sometimes has troubles in vulnerable spots in home. I just want a temporary solution until they dig in and install the new u-verse network through the park to avoid running 50'of exposed wire from router in back bedroom to front living room for my son to be able to use watch his streaming stuff until we get something better. We've tried extenders but they don't work well in this old metal box I call home...lol Please advise if possible? Thanks for reading my rant!😉

A lot to unpack there. Simply this uses your electric wiring in your house in place of a wired network cabling. So if you don't want to string a network cable from your back bedroom to front living room this could be a good solution. This won't change anything with your Internet speed and issues. It just saves you from having to install network cables when your house is already finished.
