    Question Affordable way to get a wired network to another room?

    In my office I have a wireless Cisco Linksys EA4500 router, it has 4x wired ports (which are all in-use right now). Now across the house I have setup some HW that requires 4x wired RJ-45 connections (the hardware is not WIFI ready) so I see 2 simple solutions:
    1- Buy 2x switches one to free up a port on my wireless router then run an RJ45 across the house and setup another switch there, costly and got to make some holes
    2- Buy RJ-45 to WIFI adapters for each box ($40+ each) which is again costly

    I am looking for an affordable solution to my network woe?s?

    What I thought ? can?t I buy a 4-port wireless SWITCH or ROUTER to act as a repeater in the room (so WIFI connect to my wireless router) and connect my 4-devices physically to the box? If so are there cheap boxes that can do this?

    If not ? any suggestions?
    Thanks,

    USB wireless adapters?

    I am not sure if wireless routers will allow this config but might be worth a try.

    Also, I have seen these.

    Im not sure it would be more cost effective, but power line adapters are great.
