Hey everyone I need some help if possible I am moving my modem to my office as it has a better link for some reason not sure why but according to Comcast all green lights on my modem is the best possible signal and where i have it right now my link light is orange and in my office i get all greens.. Anyway i am using a dlink router 615 and a netgear fs108 8 port switch with auto link

the current setup is

1 modem to router
2) router to switch
3) switch to xbox and desktop


this setup is with the modem in the living room with the orange light (poorer signal)

when i tried to set it up in the office i had this setup

1) modem to switch
2)switch to router
3)switch to xbox
4) switch to desktop

this caused me to have no internet connectivity for my router did i do something wrong? i would appreciate any help

Thanks
