router switch on network


Hi, I am trying to determine if this will work. I have one switch, 1 cable modem and 2 pc's. I know that the router operates on OSI level 3 and the switch operates on level 2. Therefore, my switch should be able to share the broadband connection, right??

Not if the switch is not NAT enabled (layer 3). If the switch is layer 2, then you would need 2 external IP addresses (one for each system) in order for it to work. My ISP (adelphia) only leases 1 IP per connection, so a switch will not work for me. It may work in your case though. Hook up both systems through the switch, set them to DHCP and see what happens.

What type of switch is it? It shouldn't be a problem if you do as slightcrazed said.
