To connect a router or a dsl modem to a switch you either have to use port 4 or use a utp crossover cable. As you can see on the Netgear FS605 the modem/router has to be connected to port 4.

The correct way to connect these devices is:

Modem > Router > Switch > Computers

There is no software that allows me to connect to my pc. My pc has searched and tried to install but cannot find software . Asks me to insert cd but we didnt receive a cd with our purchase from o2 shop

you can download sony erricson pc suite and install it in the pc. Make sure that the downloaded software will support your operating system. If xp it will work. If vista , you need to download latest pc suite . By using that you can connect your phone to your PC. Hope you will succeed,....

Wont connect and software cd


Here is a link to Netgear's support page for that product. Depending on the version you have their are documents pertaining to how to set up your switch. Example of documentation here. I think the issue you are having is that you don't have it configured correctly for your network. Follow the instructions and you should be up and running in no time. Their isnt software for this device, you just have to access the device and change a few settings.

Good luck,

I just got a Lexmark x1270m from a friend that didnt need it anymore and im trying to install the it. But the only problem is that he didnt give me a software cd for it. How can install it without it?

Yes, you can install without it. But before you plug that printer in, make sure you download the drivers from You wont be able to find the drivers by normal methods, but you can put "x1270m" in the search bar at the top of their website, and at the bottom of the page will be the link to download the drivers. Be sure to install the software from lexmark before plugging in the usb cable, or it may not install correctly.
