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.

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.
