Ethernet to Router and Modem Questions


New Member
If internet searching had not gone down the drain several years ago, I might could find these answers without troubling others.....

I DO appreciate the time and patience involved in all the help I get.

Considering hard-wired, cable-connected, computers; other than providing a handful of ports, what, if any, benefit is a router ?

What, if any, would be the disadvantage of having the hard-wired machines connected via a switch BETWEEN the router and modem; thus, the router could be placed in a much more advantageous location without the need for everything else having to originate at the router ?
