Clarify

the easiest way is to unplug the PC and see what light goes off.

The answer depends on what type of Switch you have. What make/model Ethernet switch do you have?

would show you all the hops, but it works off of Layer 3, if you have a switch that works off of Layer 2 of the OSI model. The L2 switch would not show up. You would need 3rd party software to find that out.

there are some test tools that can help

by robo_dev In reply to tracert

Some of the Hobbes tools have the 'portfinder' function that can flash a port LED on the switch.

"What's more, the LANID giga is also equipped with a port-finder feature that h elps to determine the workstation?s corresponding port: Just connect LANID giga to an unknown or unsure wall port and it will send a discontinuity 10/100 /1000 auto-negotiation signal to communicate with Switch/Hub."
