So I was wondering, would a network like this work where all the computers could see and talk over the LAN (Example: LAN party games), and all have an internet connection?

Thanks for the help!!

hello there...

I don't see why not, as long as they are all on the same subnet, they will definitely be able to see each other and have a LAN party share files etc.

since all your switches are unmanaged, and I'm not sure which router you are using and if it will allow you to have VLANs. If it does let you create VLANs then you can have several virtual networks in your main network, in that case computers on different virtual network will have different subnet and will not be able to talk to each other.

But simple network where the DHCP is handled by your router, all of the computers will be assigned an IP by your router all of which will be on the same subnet.
