With thanks!

Many wireless capable routers will have wired ethernet ports on them. Generally 4 or 5.

Your internet service provider may provide you with one of these units. CenturyLink and AT&T both use DSL modems with ethernet ports and wireless capabilities.

Attached is a current product at our favorite blue box store. Note that it tells you that it is dualband wireless with 4-port ethernet switch in the description.

You can find many brands with these capabilities. Netgear, DLink, Cisco, Belkin and many others are out there.

Hope this helps.

Yes, of course.
Go for Netgear or Linksys routers that all should have at least 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Many thanks.
