Answer

You should be able to run any one PC at time using a switch. Hubs may only work for connecting multiple computers together. I have a 4 port router, this Linux box, the old Mac, and phone all get along fine leaving the last port for guests.

Phone? Yeah, Vonage, $27.25 a month for full featured local service and unlimited US long distance.
