    Seeking a true OSX.1 user who has network experience, THANKSSSS!

    The switch you are having must still have the old ethernet address attached to the ports. You could either restart the switch, off it and turn it on in a one minute. or you could manually delete the arp address from the computers

    Routes, Routing Tables, NAT, etc. - I'm confused. HELP

    Alternatives to Software Base Station

    By looking at your setup, I'd suggest you get an Airport. Its a bit tad expensive I know, but from a single point of connection it serves its purpose well in your environment. The new Airport now supports internet connection sharing as well as a dialup modem so its a good choice. Whats your...
