Suggestion needed for a home network setup

Hi,

I'm currently trying to setup a home network to 9 rooms in a house.  I'm using cable modem for internet connection, and thinking of using wired router to setup the home internet network.  Now after a bit of searching, the max. amount of ports on a wired router I've came across is 8 ports, which is just 1 short of the number of rooms.  Is there any ways I can come around this problem?  Or do I have to use wireless?  Thanks very much.
