I tried to put our equipment on the ef3116 switch and when I did that, I couldn't get anything to logon. I put the network feed into port 1 and ran everything els off of that. Am I doing something wrong?

This is a switch so if it is the only thing that is attached to your modem it will not work for more than one device. The first device that it talks to will be the only one with internet. If you want to use internet on more than one device you need to get a router. This will make it so you can use more than one device on your network.
If it is not the only thing attached to your modem and a router comes first then setup is simple. You just have an Ethernet cable go from any port on the router to the "uplink" or "internet" port on the switch. Once this is attached you can attach anything else to the switch and it will have internet.
Without knowing your network setup, I can list a few general ideas.
First, try powering off your Cable modem and disconnect all cables to it and unplug it for about 1 minute. Then reconnect the power. After about 30 seconds, reconnect the coaxial cable (thick black round cable with the wire sticking out) and screw it on tight. After about 30 seconds, reconnect the network cable from your cable modem to your router uplink port (if it has one...some newer routers have automatic uplink detection).
If that doesn't fix it, you make have to call tech support at Time Warner so they can register your equipment in their system.
you will have 8 ethernet ports in this switch...
One port is for input all the other ports are for output...
If you dont have any dedicated uplink port, then any port can be used as an uplink port and other ports becomes downlink port...
The Lan slot of router should be connected to the uplink port in switch.... you can connect upto 7 computers in this switch(in downlink ports)...
You have a 5-port router. The 5th port can be used either as an "uplink" port (with a cross-over Ethernet cable) or as a "data" port (with a straight-though Ethernet cable).
You've not provided enough details to trouble-shoot the "staying online" problem, i.e., IP-addresses of each of the connected computers/printers, whether you're using CAT3 or CAT5 or CAT5E cables, whether you've tried different Ethernet cables, and whether the router is connected into a UPS that provides "smooth" power.
Your router supports a total of 8 connections. However, on the back there are 9 physical ports. Port 8 has two physical connectors where one (we will call it port 8a) is used to connect to a PC and the other (we will call that port 8b) is used as an uplink port. The uplink port (8b) cannot be used if something is pluged into 8a. If you are trying to use all 9 physical ports that is likely ther problem. If you need more than 8 devices connected to your switch get another 8 port switch (any brand will do) and connect the two switches via the UPLINK port with a 7 foot CAT-5 cable. Do not use a CAT-5 patch cable less then 7 feet long to connect two network devices together such as computer to switch or switch to switch as that will probably cause another problem with timing.
Another possibility is that the device at the end of port 8 has a malfunctioning network adapter. Try connecting a laptop to port 8a using a 7' CAT-5 cable. You may also want to try pluging the problem cable into another port as a way to test if the problem is somewhere along the cable run.
