You can simply connect the switch's uplink port (if available) or an ordinary lan port of the switch to one olan port of your routers switch and connect the computers to the switch.
It will work like you simply have additional ports at the routers switch.

Well after two weeks of trying to figure out why my switch wouldn't work and the rapid response from paulsep, i tried it again and didn't have any luck connecting to the internet so i decided to use a different network cable and wala, that was the problem from the beggining. thank you for giving me the motivation and now my whole house is set up with internet access including three xbox live accts..
