Question about NetGear FS608 Networking Switch

1 Answer

Home networking I just bought a media centre. and there for needed to connect it. Instread if using another long cable from the router. I thought I would shorten the distance and put a switch by my server and then just run from the new switch. My setup looks like this, router > 1st switch(3pc's and cable to 2nd switch) 2nd switch (server, media centre, consoles) Now only the pc's can use the network, the server doesn see it anymore. I have checked all switches and returns to original settins and it works. but then i can't use my media centre!!! I thought it would be something simple, just plug in a second switch and away i go. Hope someone can help

Do you get link lights on the switches, they may need to be in an uplink port.

Connect the cable from your internet provider to the internet port.

The blue ports or 1 - 4 is for non wlan connections
such as a desktop pc or a network printer.

You maybe have to setup the wireless network with a code
so others can`t use your internet.

Good luck

You need to know if your home network requires a password or paraphrase to allow you to connect. Also, you might have to check your settings on your router, they have to match the settings of your laptop wireless adaptor. You can try these solutions and if no luck post with more information

Can I use 2WIRE 2701HG-B router in COX internet connection


No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.

The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.

If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.

Linksys Wireless WRT54G vs. WET54G


For what it is worth, I fhave found streaming video does not function well using a wireless connection. The options of multipale routers will work as long as you configure them as to not have conflicting IP address assignment's via DHCP, and the routers do not have matching IP address's. Never fear all is possible with paticence. BPCS
