Hardware setup

    My router has only got one ethernet port. If I plug in a separate
    network switchbox with say 6 ports, and then plug my desktop PC,
    notebook and 2 ATA's into the switch, is the VoIP side of things likely
    to work okay?

    I know I could simply try it, but I was hoping that someone, with a
    better understand, might be able to identify potential difficulties
    before I embark on the task?

    Thanks

    Yes it will work fine. I have two hubs daisy chained from my AVM Fritz!Box
    Fon router/VoIP ATA.

    Make sure you get a switch rather than a hub, it will be more efficient.
