Use ISDN router as switch?

    Hello all,

    This might be a daft question, so please don't shoot me down in
    flames!!

    I have a Cisco SOHO 97 router installed (uptime nearly 2 years :),
    happily running my broadband connection at home. But, the 4 port
    switch is now full, and I need more ports. To keep everything nice
    and neat, I'd like a switch which matches the SOHO and will stack with
    it. Now, I know such a thing does not exist, so here's the question.

    Can you disable the ISDN interface on a Cisco 800 series ISDN router,
    and solely use it as a 4 port switch (well, 3 port switch I guess as 1
    port is chained from the main router).

    Thanks in advance!

    Chris

    PS - don't have the space for a 19" rack size router or switch...

    That will work ok.

    An expensive unmanaged 4 port switch though.
