I think I have a pretty good idea on what the answer is going to be, but I just wanted to couble check with the experts at these kinds of things. Can you use a simple 5 port switch as a broadband router for a home network, or do I have to get a router specifically?

Thanks for the help!

You can connect from a broadband router to a switching hub and then from the switching hub to each PC
