For my fellow IT brethren. I've hit a bit of a brick wall and asking for a bit of guidance. I'm trying to expand the number of available ethernet ports I have via an unused router. But I cannot get an Internet connection thru the secondary router at all. Listed below is the map of my network:

-Motorola docsis 3.0 wired modem
-Netgear wndr4300 setup as main dhcp router connected via patch cable from uplink port to uplink port to (below)
-Netgear prosafe gigabit switch unmanaged. Connected via patch cable from uplink to uplink port to (below)
-Legrand 4 port router switch setup in bridged mode rather than dhcp router. This is then connected via patch cable to my pc.

Ip structure from first router to final switch:

-Netgear wndr4300/
-Legrand router /
-Main PC /

I left the ipv4 settings on PC to automatic to give a clean slate for troubleshooting . I tried a couple different staic addresses to no avail.I have blanked out the Mac addresses for privacy reasons .

I hope this helps ;)
