Tell more. The usual LAN and such can support about 254 IP addresses. What is "running out of IP" since it can't be addresses unless there are config errors there or you really do have 250 clients.

he probably means physical connections :)
Can only plug in so many cables after all.

And yes, you can plug in a switch or router into your DSL modem/router.

You only want one router per subnet. Most can be configured for some number of dhcp (dynamically assigned addresses) as well as some number of static local addresses. If you need more dhcp addresses, then reduce the number of static addresses (while making sure you don't need them for things like local servers).

Commercial routers can handle multiple subnets, but SOHO ones (small office / home routers) cannot.
