I just bought one of these:

I am trying to hook two laptops up to a third laptop that will house Microsoft Access tables.

Should I plug this switch up to the an Ethernet cord attached to a modem? If so, will the other two computers hook up to the internet through this switch?

If I don't hook this switch up to an internet cord, can the other two computer still access the internet wirelessly even when they are hooked up to this switch?

Thanks! As you can tell I am an idiot with this stuff.
