An Ethernet switch alleviates congestion on a wired network and allows multiple devices to share a network connection. You can use Airport Express with an Ethernet switch if you want to connect multiple computers with a wired connection. You install Airport Express much as if you were hooking it up to a modem; the set-up will take only a minute or two.
