Hi folks

I have three PCs in one room, currently one of them is connected by a long ethernet cable to my ADSL router which is in another room on a lower floor. I want to connect all three PCs to the ADSL router so they all have internet access. I suppose I need a switch which I will connect the long cable from the router to and then the three PCs will connect to this switch.

But what sort of switch do I need? Will just a simple 4 port job do it? Any suggestions as to which model to buy, I would want something easy to setup as I'm guessing it will have to have some settings changed to function in the way I wish - acting as a gateway/passthrough to the ADSL router?

Cheers, that's exactly what I need. Many thanks.

Been many years since I setup any networking, long enough ago that I used T pieces, BNC cables and termintors and we used it to play LAN games of Quake....
