Extending a 4-port Ethernet Modem

Specs: XP Home & PRO All SP2, 2.02GHz/512RAM
My Westell Versalink modem/router has all its four ethernet ports occuplied.

I have a need to add several more PCs to the network. What I have in mind to extend the Westell Versalink is Linksys 10/100 8-port Workgroup switch (Look Here). I believe this will be my best option. Do you agree?

You didn't provide any details about your network such as the type and amount of traffic you expect, but for most home users any basic switch from the major brands would be fine. The one you're looking at is probably all you'll ever need, but my personal choice, in the Linksys line, would be;

unmanaged SD2008
