Will this wireless router/switch set up work?

Currently I have a wired router behind my modem with a wireless router piggy backing off of it (due to the number of devices in my home that require ethernet). I would like to replace both routers, but instead of piggybacking routers, I think it would be much easier/cheaper to buy a switch. I've never used a switch before, so I wanted to post a thread here to make sure I will be going about this properly before I buy the hardware below. What I'm wondering is...

If I buy this router:

and this switch:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833166035

Will they work together? My plan is to hook up the linksys router directly to my modem, then put the switch behind the router. Like this:

Modem -> WAN Port on Linksys

Linksys port 1 -> Port 1 on switch

Last stupid question, will DHCP work through the switch as well as the three extra ports on the router?

  1. Yes it all works like you say. All the lan ports are on the same network and appear to be one large switch.

    I would look for a better router. You can get much better units than that for the money you want to spend. That is a old model that does not support 802.11n
