You should be able to use any "switch" with as many ports as you have
computers. For example:
(The Microcenter in Cambridge happens to be my usual place to buy this
sort of electronics.)
All you should need is a switch like that, and one standard ethernet cable
for each computer. If you have a very large number of machines, you can
start connecting multiple switches together, but this sounds unlikely to
be necessary for your purposes.
