So i need to break up my internet into wired and wireless parts. I have the cable router linked to a switch which break up the connection in two. One goes to a mac pro and the other goes to the wireless router. I cannot get the router to broadcast a signal that carries the internet though.

is there a setting that needs to be changed for this to work properly?

mac pro 8 core, Mac OS X (10.5.8), apple wireless extreme

    Welcome to the discussions!

    This won't work. The cable modem will only issue one IP address, so only one device will connect.

    You need to hook the cable modem directly to a router (which is seen as a single device by your cable modem), not a switch.
