I have a Netgear wireless N bridge connected wirelessly to a Netgear wireless N router and it works fine. The bridge supports plugging in two Cat5 cables. I currently have those connected to my TV and to my Blu-Ray player. I will soon be adding some new equipment to my system and will need more than two connections to the bridge. Can I connect a 5- or 8-port switch to the bridge and then be able to connect more devices? It seems I should be able to do this but my networking knowledge is not great and I want to be sure this can be successfully done.

Yes, you can do it. You manual probably references "switches" as being a device that you can plug into the ethernet jack. It's usually a one line sentence that says you can plug the ethernet cable into a switch, device, computer, etc.
