Either hard wire the boxes or pickup a set of tp link home plugs,Dongles are a pain to setup as you need to download drivers ect

Why would they need network switches,As long as you plug direct into the router and box they will just pair up
 
You can get home plugs with 2 network sockets on it to replace the existing one used for the PS4 so you don't need to waste another plug with a switch.

Got a TPlink 600mb and a tp link 5 port switch for under £26 today, be more than fast enough to run both

The Edimax dongle or any with a Ralink chipset seem to work best for the Zgemma without needing drivers installed. If you have a decent router with stable WiFi, the dongle is good enough to run these boxes without issue.
If u think ur wifi is flakey and not that stable, then better to hardwire it or use a home plug extender.

Here's a link to a previous discussion on this.
