using a network switch

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?

  1. 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.
