Not really, the switch is either/or and you will need a router to connect both at the same time.

keep the switch, get a router and plug the switch into the router, which will plug into the DSL modem...............Oh............ the computers will still plug into the switch in this config., only the "uplink" from the switch (Cat5 patch cable) will actually plug into the router

In a router-switch network, all cables will be the same, Cat5 patch.

ADSL modem to the "WAN" or Internet connction on the Router

Using one of the user ports on the router, a cable to the "Uplink" or one of the user ports on the switch.

Your computers will plug into the user ports on the switch

Read the manual for the router if you want to customize your router settings.........
