    how exactly are you connecting to the internet? so you use a switch to connect your computer to one that is connected directly to the internet ?

    What service are you using for your phone? When I had Vonage, I was able to use it through my router just fine. You could choose to put it in front or behind the router... I chose behind since I didn't want their crappy little hub controlling my network.

    Also, I have no idea how a switch works, but is it possible that you forgot to forward the ports? I know I forgot to do it when I switched to a wireless router.
