Hi I have a spare belkin adsl wireless router with an adsl input at the back and 4 ethernet connections (RJ45) at the back.

Can I just use the router functionality without the adsl to extend the network at home?  i.e. to give me 3 additional wired network points.

I suppose in essence I want to tunr my spare wireless router into a network switch!

Is it possible to achieve that with what I have.
