Linking multiple devices without router


Hi All,
I need to link a dozen Linux based data capture devices to a PC without a router or internet. The data capture are linux based devices and the PC will ubuntu. Clients and server.
I know very little about this, what I thought I'd do is use a switch and give all the devices a static ip wth same start e.g. 192.168.0. . Will this work? Can I use static ip and a switch?
Thanks

That is in order. Just consider the convention that 192.168.0.0 usually is a network as understood by routers, and 192.168.0.1 ...2 ...3 (and so on) is understood leases to hosts. So it is good to begin your static assignments to 192.168.0.1, 192.168.0.2, ... and so on. Switch. That has been the way for many years.

Yes. If using 192.168.0.0/24 (netmask 255.255.255.0) valid addresses are 192.168.0.1-192.168.0.254
