Hello Habr!
I need to make a wired network for 7PCS + Wi-Fi

Have 1 cord of the optical fiber, it is necessary to provide simultaneous Internet access with 7PCS and an opportunity to connect over Wi-Fi.
How to do it better?
In practice faced with the fact that you need more than 4 PCs and always had router with Wi-Fi, but the 7-port router couldn't find.
I guess I need a good router with Wi-Fi and switch to it, but decided to first ask the knowledgeable people.
Thank you.

You have the same provider gets "optical cable", You wrote.
So optics SPF switch, and from there twisted pair to a router in WAN, LAN twisted it again to the switch.
And users to switch +, of course, setting VLAN.
OSI Layer 3, then a managed network level.

I looked in three stores — even the 7 port router no one saw. They still exist in nature?

I'd bought a separate router, switch, access point.
Of course, if it's for home or You are low on space, look for IFIs.
If you are interested in the option of 3 glands, then you can think about what to buy, again in the framework of the budget?

Regarding which is better a switch or a router with the right number of ports.
If the network will be expanded (and we have already taken 8/8 ports), in any case, the purchase of new hardware is inevitable.
So I think it is better to acquire 8/16 port L3 switch.

Another option:
Router + L3 Switch
\r
Any Router, Wifi, 1 WAN, 1 LAN
L3 Switch, 16 Ports, slot for SPF module
\r
Organization think clear.
