I've been using the Netgear small unmanaged gigabit switches. ProSafe GS108 (8 port) or GS105 (5 port) - they work fine. They are both under $50.

Alternatively you can get a USB to GIgE adapter for your computer and put the control surface and MIO on separate network ports. Get a USB3 Gigabit adapter (USB3 or USB-C depending on your computer). Anker makes ones that are known to work. This should be well under $30.

Either approach gets you going. Adding a USB Enet adapter is probably slightly better as there is no mixing of the traffic between the Audio interface and the Control surface...

Again, thanks BJ for you help and advice! I've ordered the Netgear switch.
