Specs: Windows XP
Sorry to sound like a newb, but...
I have a Wdtvlive hub at my tv with a wirelessN usb, an Asus RT-n16 router with 2 pc's (LAN) and 2 laptops (WLAN) and I want to add a network drive (or three) for my media storage. Would a switch help with streaming?

Should my connections be: modem - router - switch - pc's?

Any help would be great, thx

Yes you can add a multiport switch in the position mentioned to expand your wired LAN. Connect from one of the router LAN ports to Switch uplink port. Not all switches have a dedicated uplink port.
