Router and Hub

Hey I was wondering a quick question.  I currently am running a Netgear RT314 Router that has 4 ports in a home network.  I just recently managed to get another computer and have no more empty ports.  I do have a little lynksys 5 port hub and was wondering if I could use this to add my 5th computer to the Network and essentially my High Speed connection?  Is this possible?

If so can someone tell me how I would go about setting it up...would I have to have my cable coming from port one plug into the Hub uplink?

RE: Router and Hub

Put one end of your Cat5 cable into one of your Netgear router's ports (not the WAN) and the other end into the Linksys hub.
