Question westell 6100 can it be used in lan?

ok so i have a westell 6100, and i want to set up a lan between it and laptop. Problem is that the westell 6100 only has an ethernet port and doesn't have those wireless lights. How do u set up the lan connection for the laptop. I dont want to get a new router that has a wireless capability because westell is very reliable and has turbo tcp as well as a nice firewall. ...This is my firs question here

To connect two comp at the same time you need a hub or switch, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833124005 This link is an inexpensive hard wired switch. I would avoid hubs.
