When i said "our ISP" i ment our Internet Service Provider, which currently is bahnhof (75% sure).
And yes, now that ive plugged the switch in again, everything from my old post applies. :) When i posted that post i actually thought i was using a router, but it was a switch.. i didn't see the difference between them. I'm not sure i do now either, but i know its two different things.
I have a question. You said that "All ports are open all of the time" above, does that mean i never ever EVER will need to forward a port (if i use the switch)? I just tested uTorrent to see if the port was forwarded sucessfully.... i havn't forwarded anything (i can't do it on a switch..) but since all ports are open, it worked! It said "OK". Which is good. OOh, that's why i download faster when i use the switch :O
What is best to use? A router or a switch?
My Stepfather looked on the router, and he said it was dead. I have no idea what he did with, but i think he's right, those small green blinking lights aren't blinking anymore, none of them are... And yes, it was plugged in when he looked at it..
Oh and when the internet stopped working, we weren't able to connect to the router.
