You are basically just adding more ports onto your router, to put it plainly.

I think the main problem a lot of you are having has to do with the router. You can't just plug in a switch into your modem that goes to the internet. You need a router that has NAT capeablities (Which most do nowadays). Nat enables you to have more than one computer inside the LAN to share the single internet connection. What I have at my place is my modem that connects my Comcast to my netgear router. The router has enough ports on the back so I don't need a hub / switch.

Xaine99 is spot on when it comes to the differences between routers and switches. The switch learns what MAC address is using what port, so it can forward traffic designated for a certain MAC address to the appropriate port.

This also improves security. If someone is sniffing a network using a HUB, they would be able to view all the traffic from all the machines. Switches prevent that. There are ways around that of course, but I don't want to get into specifics. I may get spanked by some directors / mods / admins, whatever they're called nowadays.
