I am guessing this is a stupid question...

I am hooking up two laptops with front end access databases to a third laptop housing the tables.

I will be using the following switch:

My question is, how are the three laptops hookup to the internet while this is done?

Can they still be hooked up to a wireless internet device?

Or... Do I have to plug in a live cord into a port on the switch and then the laptops HAVE to be hookup up through the cord?

Hope this makes sense... thanks!
