Would something like this be good for the home? Bit of a pain in my home network because everyone is hooked up different. Me and my wife are right on the router, the router goes to a hub where my 2 boys laptops are hooked up to. One other computer is on the router, router also goes to a wireless Linksys, in which the upstairs computer is hooked up to directly with wire(thus no real IP).

Would is be nicer with something like this where all computers go into directly?
