Windows 7: quick question about a switch

quick question about a switch

I have a Motorola SBG6580. It's on one end of the living room, my computer is on the other end. The cable from port 1 on the SBG6580 is connected straight to my desktop (Cat6 cable is run under the baseboard). Port 2 will be for a HTPC, port 3 is for the blu-ray player, port 4 is empty.

Can I take the ethernet cable from the modem/router (port 1) connect it to a switch (Netgear GS105 5-port Gigabit switch) that's on my desk and use the switch to have multiple ports at my desk? Will I need to change any settings in the SBG6580 for this to work?

Yes that is exactly what switches are made for, no adjustment to the settings is required.
