Question about NetGear FS108 8-Port Ethernet Switch
switches cannot be connected to the Cable modem....
because NAT will not be enabled in cable modem....so there wont be any DHCP server present in the cable modem....
Nat will be enabled only in DSL modem like AT&T verizon etc....So DHCP server will be present inside DSL modem...that is the reason why switches can be connected only to the DSL modem....
With NAT enabled modem, switch will work as a switch.... With NAT disabled modem, switch will work as a hub.... This is the difference....
Any doubts further ? please clarify with me.... I am ready to help you....

Testimonial: "Excellent! In other words i need to purchase either a cable modem/router/wireless all in one appliance. Any suggestions of which to buy, Cisco may be????"
I have a netgear FS516 and an Arris Media Gateway 5 Series Router. I connected a standard cat 5 cable between one of the ports in the back of the Arris to the Uplink port in the first bank of ports on the Netgear FS516 and everything seems to work fine. But now I need to access the next bank of ports on the Netgear. I duplicated the setup using another ethernet port in the back of the Arris to the Uplink port in the next set of ports on the Netgear - but I get several lights blinking on the Netgear and I lose my internet connection. How do I activate the next set of ports on the Netgear?

If the switch has an "uplink" port, connect a "straight-through" Ethernet cable from the cable-modem to the "uplink" port.
If the switch does not have an "uplink" port, connect a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from the cable-modem to one of the 8 'LAN' ports.

SOURCE: blinking light on NetGear FS108
One LED is a Link light that will blink on activity.
The other shows link speed.
These boxes have AutoUplink negotiation so no crossover cables are required.
Test again with a standard straight though ethernet / CAT5 cable.
