Broadband Question

I have a speedtouch ADSL modem with one usb port and one Ethernet slot. I wanted to connect a games console to it so i went out and bought a netgear 8 slot switch. However for some reason when the ethernet cable from my modem is plugged into the switch it will not connect.
Any suggestions?

Unless the network switch has an "Uplink" port or auto-sensing ports, you may need to use a CROSSOVER ethernet cable between the router and the switch. Presumably it is a "router", not just a modem, otherwise you won't be able to connect multiple devices to the internet.
