Sure sounds like one, especially if it's got "Fast Ethernet Adapter" in the name.

A Switch will intelligently route packets between computers on a local area network.

A Router is a device that can automatically assign IPs to computers on the local area network via DHCP, share an internet connection between them using NAT, and keep pests out of the network.
