50 Computer Lab

Hi guys! I need to setup 50 computers for an event, I was wondering how could I connect them to the internet, since that's what the company wants, I was thinking getting a router and going like this,

Cablemodem----> Router----> 3, 20 port switches. Would setting a network like this work?

Please I need help, or what are my other options to make this work.

  1. Depending on:
    The bandwidth coming in to the router
    The router capabilities
    The performance expectations

    ...Yes that might work.
  2. yes it should work.... but if you have to ask this question they should fire you. because you don't know how to do your job

    I am not in the Networking field, so no, I am actually doing extra stuff from my regular job. They should promote me if that's the case. Any suggestions on the a specific router?

    Spend $500 of that to hire a local networking guy for a day or two to suggest equipment and set it up.
    There are still a LOT of questions that need to be asked and answered.
