  1. How many LAN ports does your ADSL modem have?
    If there are more than 2 LAN ports, you don't need a switch or a hub.
    Usually, ADSL modems have 4 LAN ports.

    You can connect each computer to those LAN ports using ethernet cables and the ADSL modem should do all the job.
  2. Best answer
    If your ADSL modem has more than 1 RJ45 plug on the back, then it also incorporates router functionality. You do not need anything else.

    If it only has 1 RJ45 port on the back, you need a router, not a switch.
