In such situations, comes to the aid of a device called "switch".
How to connect switch
You will need
  • network cable
  • access to a network 220V
Instruction
1
Switch is a device used to combine multiple computers or laptops in a single LAN. Distinguish swicth with configurable and non-configurable ports. If there is no need to configure specific ports of the switchand it is recommended to use the second type because they were easier to work with.

Connect each computer of the future local area network to switchfrom using network cables RJ 45 format. If all the ports in switche are equal, you can connect to any free. If switche ports are configurable, then it is better to connect those computers from which you want to manage the switchom and the network as a whole.
