      Answer

      If you go from the modem directly into a wireless router, then any hard wire connection off the router can go into as many switches as you want. I have my cable modem feeding into my Linksys wireless router, then out of my router into my 12 port switch, and then from my 12 port switch I have 2 other 8 port switches in other parts of the house. Then problem for most people is they try and come right off the modem right into a switch and you will get blocked every time. If you go into the router 1st, the ISPs can't see past the router.

        This is a wired connection and will extend a single port into four additional ports. Use a quality Cat 6 or Cat 7 Cable andall should be good.

        It should work without a problem. You still need some type of modem/router for internet, etc.
