  1. I'm going to assume you are using a consumer switch, which are almost always unmanaged. There shouldn't be anything you need to configure on the switch, just plug in the laptops. The configuration will need to be done on the laptops and/or in the game. Are you trying to setup a LAN game for just the 4 laptops or are you doing something else? If you include what game you are using and what OS you use it would help.

    It is important to know the basic cisco switch configuration with the cisco switch configuration commands and basic operational cisco switch commands to surly execute the performance of any internetwork.

    duplex {auto/full/half}: This command sets duplex mode for interface.

    switchport port-security mac-address: This command statically adds MAC address as allowed address on the port.

    switchport port-security mac-address sticky: This command tells switch to learn MAC addresses on the interface and add as secure MACs.

    switchport port-security violation {protect/restrict/shutdown}: This command tells switch what to do if an appropriate MAC tries to access through secure switch port.

    switchport port-security maximum [value]: This command allowed max of secure MAC on the interface.
