I have a comcast cable modem with four cat5 outs. Can I put a switch/router on one of the outs to expand the number of computers accessing the connection. It's not that I need to run more than four computers online at once but more of a convenience thing as I now have to manually plug/unplug devices as needed. Thanks for your input.

It would be better to use a switch, not another router. That way you won't run into any DHCP/IP conflicts.
