    Modem/Router question

    Sandkhan

      So I got my slingbox in yesterday(much to my excitement) and tried to hook it up.  Once I fished my slinglink ethernet cable through the wires and desk and was all set to plug it in and enjoy, I realized that I had a modem and not a router and that my modem only had one ethernet port(the one that obviously goes from the wall into the modem to make everything work).  My question is do I need to buy a router and go Wall-Router-Slinglink and Modem or would it be possible at all to buy a ethernet splitter and achieve the same goal.  Also, if I have to get a router, does anyone have some good, somewhat cheap suggestions?  I have a motorola SBG900 surfboard modem if that helps answer any questions.  Thanks guys
