The cable that connects from the linksys goes to the netgear switch. I'm not too sure why we have a switch. My dad is a network architect so I guess he figured we needed it.
From what I know, from the switch we have several different outgoing cables, most of them stay in the office (outside of the house about 10-15 feet away) while two of them go into the house, one to the linksys router, and one to another switch(or router not sure what this one is) which connects to a console and dvd player.
However, all the computers are connected to the linksys, 2 by wireless, one is wired (mine)
Could it be that the netgear switch has it's own ip that I need to find? If needed, I can take one of the laptops and connect directly to the netgear switch.
