ADSL modem/netork curly question

Bit of a curly question here.
I have a 4 port Wireless ADSL modem.

We have 2 desktops plugged into the ADSL modem

Another port is used to connect to a network socket in the dining room.

The 4th port is used by the networkprinter

I want to add a network drive and another printer to the network but obviously have run out of ports

Can I plug a ethernet hub/switch into one of those 4 ports and extend my network options tomake more ports??

As long as the hub is called a "10/100 switch" Then no worrys at all (most modern multi port hubs are auto switchs these days)

... Yes, but you may find it better if you plug everything into the switch and have a single cable to the router if you are sharing files etc thru it. The switches in some routers is... well somewhat crap IME...
