Hi all. I recently moved and in my new place my wireless router is way far away from the rest of my equipment that needs to be on the network i.e. desktop computer, xbox, NAS drive, etc... I'd like to run just one Ethernet cord into my room and set up a switch. I currently have two pieces of equipment, a very old d-link di-604 broadband router and a newer (yet still kinda old) linksys wrt54g wireless router. I'm wondering can either of those be used to set up a switch? If not, what sort of equipment should I get? Do I need a dedicated switch or can I use a wireless router with the wireless functionality turned off.
Any help would be much appreciated.
