    A router you would use if you were going to have a cable or dsl modem providing access to the internet.

    A switch you would use if you weren't going online with more than one computer, like for a LAN party.

    If you do need to be able to get them online, and there for used a router, and then added more computers later, then you would add a switch to the home LAN network

    What I want to do is connect ~4 PC's to the net. So it looks like I need the router. Thanks for the answer.
