No. You need a router to set / obtain an IP or connect it directly to the computer RS232 serial port. No network required, but is old school and may be difficult. Specially with MAC. You are better off getting a new router.
A switch is a device for networking computers printers or other devices with an ethernet port. Most common scenario would be to hook a cat5 cable from your broadband router's lan port to Port 1 and then connect your other ethernet devices to the remaining ports. In order for the devices to cmmunicate you'll want to make sure that they are on the same ip subnet. Usually, 192.168.1.x.
Your router may be 192.168.1.1, your PC 192.168.1.100 Printer 192.168.1.101. Each device needs a unique IP address.
Hope that helps.
maybe you need to configure this ethernet switch or it is a password problem i have used a ethernet splitter switch to use two connect 2 computers before purchasing a router which needed to be configured
hope this helps
Modem (DSL or Cable) -> Router (WAN port), Router (LAN port) -> Switch. Use Ethernet cable. If that does not solve your problem, please give me more details. There is really nothing to it - it is very easy.

im not 100% on the Q but if its a motor home then the best thing to do would be one computer connected to the disk vea ethernet but you could get a router and use both cheepist thing to do is to run 1 computer
You need to enter the router configuration. How you do this varies by
model, but usually involves typing your gateway address into a web
browser. Then, you need to assign your xbox an internal IP address and
activate port triggering or forwarding (depending on the sophistication
of your device) to send information on the designated ports to the Xbox.RICHARDM69
