I have a Netgear C6300 modem/router with my main W7 system connected directly to one port of the router. The router is at its default address of, and the W7 system is at I also have a Netgear GS108E switch connected to the router, and XP and W2K systems connected to another two ports of the switch. When I run the Netgear ProSafe_Plus Configuration Utility (on the W7 system) it finds the switch and reports it at IP address (the default address, as expected), and says that it is 'Located on IP Network'

My questions then, are: 1. What is it that causes the switch to be associated with the W7 system? 2. What, exactly, is the entity ' IP Network ' ? 3. What might be the case if there was a second system also connected directly to the router?

Apologies if I haven't expressed myself clearly. It's quite possible that I don't even know the correct question to ask!

Thanks, Roger
