using a network switch Tags: Network Switch Internet Connection Networking Last response: May 25, 2005 5:34 PM in Networking Share xailenth May 25, 2005 5:15:07 PM Im a little new to setting up networks so I was wondering, can a switch be connected to a router and split an internet connection between 2 computers (ex. desktop and a laptop) working somewhat like a hub? More about : network switch riser May 25, 2005 5:34:42 PM Yes. A switch is the newer version of the out-dated hub. Older home network routers used to just have 1 port to connect to. Modern home routers are actually routers with built in switches so you only need the router instead of a router and switch. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
