How to connect a switch to share a network point
OK, really basic question here, but I've never done this before and I want to do it right!
I need to share one network wall (wired) point between two computers, after one of our existing network points went down (can't get it fixed, as classroom computers/networking is all under review). I have some switches around that we own but that are no longer needed elsewhere: Netgear FS108 and 3Com OfficeConnect Switch8. Can I use one of these to connect the two computers to the one wall point, and if so which would be best? And do I just plug them in and go, or do I need to do any configuring?
