    Question. Right now I have a wireless router that connects 4 PC's via WIRED ethernet. Now I need to hook up a fifth and sxith PC.

    Can I SIMPLY add a hub to one of those router lines and extend out my wired network that way?

    So I want to be able to add a hub to connect an additional 2 PC's. Will all 6 PC's still be able to talk to each other like the four do now with just the router?

    Router to 3 PC's
    and
    Router to Hub to 3 PC's

    Can I do that and is it plug and play?

    Yep, that should work just fine plug and play. Just make sure you don't accidentally get another router instead of a hub or switch.
