Default ethernet audio device - need a switch


Wondering if anybody could advise me on a little problem,

Iím designing a wireless ethernet audio system.

There are two main components to this system the wireless bridge and the audio network module, these are connected by a cat 5 cable.

However on the back of the unit I need an ethernet port so I can configure the wireless bridge, this means that I need a switch that disconnects the audio module from the bridge and connects the bridge to the socket instead.

Would an X pole three way switch be suitable?
( x being the number of pins for ethernet 8?)

If so would the network still function, or would there be to greater length of untwisted exposed cable?

Or can anyone think of a more elegant solution, whilst keeping it simple and cheap.

Cheers, dave.
