Seriously lost with network issues

Specs: Windows XP, 1GB
I'm not quite sure what is wrong with my setup...
Recently I moved into a new appartment, and I had nearly the exact same setup at my old place which worked fairly well.

(Diagram I whipped up in photoshop of my setup)

Here is the weird thing, Internet works fine on my PC when my switch does not have power (not being plugged in to an outlet).
When I have power going to my switch, internet instantly stops.
This did NOT happen at my old place.

I'm having more issues with my Xbox and PS3, but I think I can solve those myself once I figure out this switch issue.

Any help? I am so lost, I can't figure out what is going on.

The link to your image doesnt work so I have no idea what your setup is. Do you have a router in there somewhere?

I would guess something in your router IP setup. In the new apartment, are u using the same internet provider? You might have some static ip setup in the router. If you "switch" is a router, has anyone changed the default settings in it?
Hard to tell with this little info.

Lets see if this link works.
The switch itself worked fine at my old place, the only new thing is the actual router.

What router? There is no router in the diagram just a modem and switch. with this setup the XBox, PS3 and PC are all trying to use the same IP address of the modem. This is impossible.

Er, I meant I got a new Modem, sorry.
I tried moving the modem's ethernet cable from the uplink port into a regular port, that actually fixed one of my problems. Later on I put it back in the uplink port for giggles, and it still works.... Weird.
The switch can be powered on and be used, I get internet on my PC as well as my 360/ps3, they can now get connected on the internet at the same time. Why isn't it possible to share an IP? Aren't I doing that right now?

The only other problem I have now isn't really a networking thing, more of a recognition thing. PS3 isn't recognized by my PC, It won't prompt me to see if I want to share my media with it. >:/
