Sounds like you may have some wires cross between your switch and your router. And if someone worked on your pc, there probably something wrong with it too. Most places dont know how to fix a computer they just reinstall the OS and hand it back to you, less the unique drivers from your computer mfg for hardware such as network adapter drivers. Connect dirctly to the modem and got to dell support or whomever and check drivers

this is a default check that windows does when a new network is detected "wireless or wired"
you must select the type of network this device is connecting too(public/private/home). for the most part you would select home.
do you get on the internet after choosing one? as either way you should be on the internet

You sure can. Start w/ the Comcast modem as long as it is NOT a USB type and hooks using a CAT-5 cable (regular network cable). Hook the comcast modem to the WAN port of the wireless router. On the back of the wireless router use the normal 1-4 extra LAN ports to hook other computers or the SD208 switch to it and other computers from there.

Word of advise if using Wireless Router, be sure to read manual and set a KEY for your network to secure it from unwanted outside use.

Yes, but you'll need a crossover cable to connect the two routers. You could buy a hub or a switch. They are easier to configure and cheaper.
