5 PCS with NIC + ADSL MODEM ROUTER

By gizmoses ·
I want to connect 5 pcs to the internet (ADSL) with ethernet cable. The
problem is, I don't know how to do it. I know there are many adsl routers
out there, but many of them only provide 4-ports for LAN. How do I
expand the 4 ports ? Is it possible to use hub ? Or switch ?

Please help me here. I am not very good at networking.

Thanks.

You can either get a 4 port and an extra hub or switch to plug into the fourth port or you can just get an 8 port router.

Hub vs Switch

by gizmoses In reply to Choices

Thanks for your reply. I have decided to buy a new adsl
modem router with 4 ports and a hub.

What is the main difference by using either hub or switch ?
