How is it you know they don't have connectivity?
what do you mean by connectivity? they can all connect to the internet
my problem is with w7 and sharing folders within my home network, it was working fine before the switch was added
i dont think its firewall or cables.. if anything the subnet issue sounds very possible.. the pc's off the switch seem to be in it's own "subnet"

It assigns all ports to VLAN 1 and forwards the traffic to the router. If everything is connected in the router, the router will see that hey this needs to go to VLAN 2 or VLAN 3.
So to sum it up, does the switch support 802.1q tagging?
try moving all pc's that hang off the switch to the same subnet. example
That should fix your issue.
ignore the wifi router, that might be a separate issue all together
what i mean by 2 separate networks is that , if i connect 2 pc's to the switch, they can see each other
but if i connect one to the switch, and one directly to the router/modem, they cant see each other
sorry for my lack of networking terminology, and by 'see each other', i mean if i share a folder in w7, the other pc cant see it
here is the link the to switch:
how do i move subnets? through my router ?Edited by koven - 3/10/11 at 3:31pm
