hi all, im going to get adsl soon, and have been looking at networking our computers...now i was looking at routers which informs me about this wll serve and one computer doesnt have to be on 24/7 for others to use etc...
but how does this work? could someone please explain to me.
also, ones ive seen only have a 4 port connection on them, surely this is limeted, so can you connect other switches/hubs to them? also info on if/how this can be done would be nice please. thanks

If you want to add more than 4 PCs on a 4-port router, simply add a switch - see click here for general networking advice
