I'm running an extremely complicated network - not that I want it to be that way, but it must be. Our cable modem is hooked up to a linksys router. That router serves one computer, and also sends a cable to a switch in the attic, from which 3 cables break out (it was impracticle to wire 3 cables through the attic). Two of those cables go straight to computers, which works fine. For the third, I want to connect it to my Netgear wireless router which will serve my desktop hardwired and my laptop wireless.
I know it's an insane setup but this is the only physically practicle way to do this.
Everything works fine up to the netgear router in my room. How do I configure it to accept the connection from the router downstairs, to the switch in the attic, to the Netgear, and then out to my laptop (wireless) and desktop (wired)?
I only need internet, but being able to do LAN would be nice, although I'll take what I can get.
