    I have a WRT54G Linksys router. It is also a switch:confused: And I have ran out of ports. I am finding myself in need of more ports. Can I just get a 5 port switch and uplink to it from one of the ports on my router.:confused:

    Are we there yet?
    Yes you may. It will work fine. The only thing you may run into depending on the make, is the need for a crossover cable for switch to switch hook-up. Some will auto-sense it, some won't. Check the web site for the one(s) you look at.
