Now, if I connect the server to the Netgear Wireless router directly (CAT5), it connects without a problem. But when ever I try to make it connect using the setup shown above, it can't connect and gives me the following error:
Determining IP information for eth1...PING 192.168.0.1 (192.168.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
Nice picture - but he's correct, you need a router splitting the Cox connection. The reason is this - your cable company probably limits you to 1 ip address (check your EULA). Well, if the switch is allowing concurrent connections without subnetting it, it's allowing the use of more than 1 global IP - can't (well, can, but Cox ain't gonna let it) happen. You need to replace the DLink switch with a router, and the wireless router with a wireless switch. Know what I'd do? Take the DLinka nd the Netgear back, and get a DLink wireless router - all problems solved.
You will have to connect the server to the router, then do port forwarding (port 80, 8080, etc..) in order to run the webserver. I think that you router is also a firewall, check your manual. To learn more about routing go here.. http://www.ox.compsoc.net/~steve/portforwarding.html
