I am not really good with networks like this.. I can set up standard networks and get them working in my home.. but here is the problem.. maybe someone can help me with it.

I have a non-wireless network of computers NOT attached to the internet(windows XP machines). I have one PC that can access my father in laws wireless network and get online (windows 7). But, as soon as I plug in the hardwire from the switch to the computer that is connected wirelessly, the wireless connection drops and cannot access the internet.

so thus the question : Is there a way to allow the main computer to be online and STILL connect to the machines that are not attached to the(wireless/internet) network? I have then on a switch/Hub that connects them together. And I have the router they were attached to when they were all connected to the internet.

please help
