first of all, my house has a network already built into it. the phone jacks are also LAN ports. the switch box is in the master bedroom closet. and i have Cable internet. so here's my scenario. in my living room, from the cable wall plug to the modem. from the modem to a wireless router. from the wireless router to the LAN wall port. in another room. from the LAN wall port to a normal router. from the router to a laptop. no internet. although. from the LAN wall port to a laptop. it has internet. so i'm basically using my laptop to test, so that i can use normal router for my consoles, but it's not working.
