I have a Hawking wireless router HWR54g. I have two computer using ports on the router. I have several using the wireless. I need to add a switch/hub DLink DSS-5+. I don't want to run long cable to a room downstairs. I have one cable run already and would like to add the switch then run short cables from the switch. When I add the switch I couldn't get to then internet. or the router interface.
I have read that maybe I need a cross over cable. I checked both the router and switch neither have a uplink port. I read that the switch is auto sensing so I thought I didn't need the xover. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?
