I want to transfer gigabit local connection thru the same cable and switch as a connection to the world wide web at whatever internet speed I buy.

I will draw the picture when i have a computer handy. Basically where you have your "switch" put the router. You will connect as follows. The Internet connects to your modem. Your modem connects to your router. Your router connects to everything on your network. You router provides NAT which allows all the devices on your network talk to the internet. Your router also provides dhcp which assigns ip address to your computers and server. What kind of server are you setting up?

well it is hypothetical, but if i am setting one up it will be a windows home server 2011
you were very helpful so thank you.
One last question, could i then hook a switch up to the router if i need to have more than however many ports on the router there are, or would i need to use a second router?
