Hello,
I have installed a Harman/Kardon AVR via Ethernet cable to the router (2wire).It will not connect to the internet. My home network shows the AVR, but linked to a switch from the router. Where does this "switch" come from? How do I get this AVR to connect? I am running win 7, 32 bit.
Thank you in advance.

If you look at the AVR network settings does it have appropriate settings, is it automatic, or manual, and does it say "connected" or "not connected" at the bottom of the network setting page?

The phantom switch is just because Windows doesn't know the device and it looks like a switch and the AVR -- it's just the AVR interface.
