Hey in my den, I have a wireless extender that has an Ethernet output, but I would like to now plug into 2 things (smartTv and a chrome cast). While they both can use wireless connection I thought the wired Connection from the extender would be a little better (faulty assumption maybe?) so I got a desktop switch and it’s not working. Is there a reason this will not work? I have Verizon internet if it matters.

Thanks for any help

You're sure of this? A simple wireless extender would have an ethernet port only for configuring it. Does it also have a wireless client mode? Or combination extender and client mode? Have you tested with a device to make sure that it does indeed have ethernet output?

What is the brand and model of the desktop switch?

If you want to connect multiple devices to one ethernet connection you need an ethernet switch, not a desktop switch.
