Not sure if I understand you question, but I think the answer is yes.

Server
|--------Router - Wireless broadcast
|
|-----Machine one in port 1
|
|-----Machine two in port 2

Etc. ...

Any machine could still access the wi-fi while the server communicated with the network machine's via hard wire ...

Could be a simplistic view of what your trying to do ... dunno.

the answer is yes...but why?

There are easier ways to do that...just network all of the computers together wirelessly..then there will be no need for a server, as all of the cpu's can access each other directly instead of having to go through a central 'hub'.

There are advantages of using a server, if he needs a central place for storing files accessible to all computers on the network, also it can be set up to block certain websites perhaps, to protect younger children surfing the internet.

Err..the reason is cause I have to connect 10+ computers w/o wireless receiver. And yet i have a laptop that i want to connect wirelessly
cable - > router - > server - > many computers

So it will work?

Yes, but does the server have that many Ethernet ports?

cable - > router - > hub/switch - > many computers
And still connect to router wirelessly.
