Cable modem - Router - LAN switch issue

judywilsoncimco
I have an Arris TM228 cable modem, Net Gear WNDR3700-100NA router and Net Gear FS116 (no E) LAN switch. If I hook modem to router and router to server I can get internet only on the server not to other computers on the network. If I hook modem to router, router to LAN switch and server to LAN switch I can't get internet on anything. If I use existing AT&T modem/router in one hooked to LAN switch everyone has internet. I have tried every configuration of cable to switch hook ups I can find and nothing works. The cable company says since it works when hooked directly to server it is something on my end and they aren't responsible. I have been working on this for 3 days. I am computer literate and can do a lot of things but don't have much knowledge of networks and switches.

The Server Windows IP Configuration when AT&T Modem is connected is:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 2:
Media State : Media disconnected
Connection-specific DNS S u f f i x . :
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS S u f f i x . : sbcglobal.net
Link-local IPv6 Address : fe80::a032:d3ba:35d7:60b5%ll
IPv4 Address : 192.168.1.29
Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : 192.168.1.254
Tunnel adapter Local Area connection- 8:
Media State : Media disconnected

Default Gateway : ::
Tunnel adapter Local Area Connection- 11:

C:\windows\system32>

Can anyone give me guidance? PLEASE

      I have seen many setups that just refuse to work, swap out with a diffferent mfgr may give you results. I had the same fault with a cisco setup and changed to LinkSys and it worked fine. Some routers require setup from a wired CAT5 port.
