You need a router to connect multiple computers to the same modem. A switch does not assign and manage multiple internet addresses the way a router does. Ask Bsnl if they use a PPPOE connection with a single assigned internet address and password. If they do you will need to set up the router with the assigned ID and password. Good Luck
