Hi. We're setting up a network ov about 15-20 pcs. We have a gigabit 24-port switch, which we can con connect to our wireless router with cat6 cable. My question: Since all the pcs have wireless capabilities, Is it possible for them to share files with ech other using the switch, and connect to the internet with their WIFI adaptors? That way, we wouldn't even need to run a cable between our switch and router...

Thanks! :)

Yes, you can, but it is not worth the time. Also, 15-20 PCs sharing one wireless router could result in slow speeds for all.
