Ethernet Switch for TiVo Mini

I have a Mini upstairs in my hearth room. Next to it I have an ATT M-Cell (that basically boosts my cell phone signal.) Right now, the ethernet goes into the M-Cell, then out of the M-Cell to the Mini. No problems at all. Except the M-Cell doesn't work, and ATT sent me a replacement. But the replacement model doesn't have an ethernet out. So I guess I have to buy an Ethernet Switch. There are cheap ones, like this:
https://www.amazon.com/Netis-ST3108S...thernet+switch

Or more expensive ones that say "Gigabit." Will the cheap one work for the Mini?

Thanks

I can't vouch for that particular switch. But I've used many very cheap ones similar to it that have worked fine with all my Tivo devices. Whether you need Gigabit depends on the expected data usage of the devices you plan to plug into the other ports. But the Mini itself certainly doesn't need it.

Yeah, any cheap switch that can do 100Mbps should be fine. Looking at recorded content via KMTTTG the max bit rate I see on recorded shows is around 16-17Mbps theoretically cable could get up to 39Mbps (and OTA 19Mbps) but I've never seen cable dedicate a full 6MHz band to a single channel.
