Now if the broadband modem has DHCP capabilities you just go to each one of the hosts and configure them to use DHCP.

If the modem does not have DHCP capabilites then you will need a broadband router. Once you have the broadband router you simpliy connect the modem to the router to the switch then to the hosts.

There is one additional step. You need to configure the router to act as a DHCP server. not difficult with most/all routers. Linksys I found was one the easiest routers to configure.

Good Luck
