    Replace Router With Ethernet Switch

    hi,
    I need some advice on router, switch selection. my question is what is the most cost efficient way to get 24 ports and wifi capability? i have Cisco877-K9 Router i don't need it as a router anymore, can i just use it as a switch/hub, just plug into the pc ports and no need to use wan connection.so i want to ask is that possible to replace it with Cisco Catalyst 2960-48TT-L.Any recommendations and suggestions are appreciated.

    2. A cable from the switch to your computer.
    3. A cable from the switch to your kids computer.
