I don't have much experience with networking. Can someone tell me if what is on this (very) rough blueprint is possible to accomplish?
Also, can a PC use a wireless bridge?

Hello,

I'm not sure how it would work, to start from the end and work back...

A typical layout would be WWW => ADSL splitter? => Modem => PC

Are you trying to add wireless capability to your network?
Regards,

Alan.

wireless, yes. My main concern is using the switch under a router.

I believe it is possible to add a hub/switch under a router; it would most likely require port forwarding. But, I would just use a modem/router/switch device such as http://www.netgear.com/Products/Routersand...=Specifications It will allow you to add wireless functionality to your network. And should remove the need for the separate modem.
Regards,

Alan.

A switch will work just fine under a router. Technically a router has 1 'port' and if there's more than one in the box it just means it has a built in switch.
