Thomson adsl2 hi got a new adsl2 today from telecom just wondering if i can use it as a switch as well for a home network wireless

What do you think a switch is? it's a router, you can network computer thru it, if that's what you want and share the internet connection.

Depending on the type of unit it is, It may have several ethernet ports that you can hook your computers into, otherwise, you may need to buy yourself a cheap ethernet network hub (~$15-30) and you can connect your computers through that.

They are 4 port wireless routers...the ones Telecom are giving out at the moment.

Switches and routers are NOT the same thing. Since when did a layer 2 switch route between subnets (which is a layer 3 feature). You need to rephrase and say that the router has a switch on its LAN interface. Hubs are layer 1 devices and should not be used.

Do you want to add the router to an existing network, or run everything off the new router?
