Networking - Is a switch what I need?

JohnDoeJohnDoe Registered User regular
At the moment, I have 2 desktops connected via ethernet to my 10/100/Wireless ADSL router. A couple of other devices (phone/laptops) connect to the router wirelessly. Both my desktops have gigabit LAN connections though, and so I want to add something so they can connect to each at gigabit speeds.

So if I understand this correctly, all I need to is to drop a switch between them.

So it goes Desktop 1 -> Switch <- Desktop 2, and the Switch connects to the Router. Nothing else changes but now the 2 desktops can transfer stuff between them faster. Is this correct?
