Skype via my switch?

I have my Windows 7 PC connected to my switch/broadband modem via an Ethernet cable. I have one Ethernet socket still spare on the switch. What I am considering is connecting a Skype phone (Philips VOIP855 say) via the spare socket and installing Skype on the PC. Then I would have Skype connected for audio calls when the PC is off and I could send files etc when the PC is on. Would this work, or is it not that simple?

Good, thanks for letting me know.

Additionally, I have an iPod touch connected by wireless. So, that's three devices all logged in on the same account at the same time. It's all very clever. I just wish I knew more about how it all works!
