I have a router on one end of my house. I've run one cat5 cable to the computer on the other side, and now (of course) I want a laptop to have a hard connection to the net there as well. Can I just use a switch, plugging the current cable I have into port 1, and running 2 separate cables to ports 2 and 3, plugging in my computers to it?
I.e.: Router -- switch -- 2 computers plugged into switch
