so I am pondering the installation of a gigabit switch on my home network in an effort to get some of my devices off the wireless. I have 3 computers, 2 printers, 1 HTPC, 2 cell phones and a tablet (the last two can stay on the wireless). Question is this:

can I hook the switch directly into the cable modem or does it have to go through one of the computers first?

 
Solution
It is best hooked to one of the lan ports on your cable modem...which I suspect is actually a router. All it does is add more lan port in effect to your modem.
