Networking-Type Question

Arc Lite

This is for work. I need to be able take my network cable that comes from the main network to my PC and split that into a second signal for use with a laptop. So I can use both the Desktop and laptop.

Would it be something as simple as a network switch like this?

Yo, homie. Is that my briefcase?
Yep, all you need is a standard network switch. Assuming that your network admins arent using manually assigned IP addresses, you should be good to go.
