Number of ports

I had 4 RJ ports on my old modem. I now only have 2 Ethernet and 2 useless phone ports. I need at least 4 ports. Is there a xfinity modem /router with more ports? Best swtitch to use to gain ports ?

I had the same issue.  I bought a gigabit 8-port switch and plugged everything into it and plugged the switch in the active port 1 on my XB6 gateway.
