No you still need a router. A switch allows you to extend coverage to additional wired devices. I have a router and three switches because the router only has 5 ports. I connect the switches to the router and now I have 18 ports in different parts of the building I am in.

Switches create networks, routers connect networks. Multiple devices connected at a location (PCs, game consoles, tablets, etc.) are a Local Area Network. The Internet is a separate network, connecting your LAN to the Internet requires a router.

Hi Jeff. Ethernet switches are basically used to provide extra ports in an existing network setup; or it can also be used to link ethernet cables or two or more networks.

I am certain that you can, since the switch is merely directing the connection, but I prefer the other way around. Everything in my home is on the same subnet, and I pre-wired my house for ethernet in every room. I ran the modem to the router, and a port on the router to the switch. From there, every bedroom, living room and kitchen were connected at a central point.

SE2500 is a copper wired switch only. It has no built-in wireless capability. Wireless access points (AP's) can be added to provide WiFi wireless service. I do this.

If you were to connect two 5-port units using a split from one hardwire feed from your router or modem, you would have a total of 8 ports for output. The 5-port unit has one input and 4 output ports.

Hi Richard. The Cat5 supports voice and data transmission rates up to 100 Mbps. CAT6 cable on the other hand provides transmission rates of 1000 Mbps which means it supports Gigabit Ethernet networking.
