I'm not disputing you, but your comment forces me to ask --- why are switches advertised as allowing multiple platforms to "share" a connection?
And why did the Geek at Best Buy tell me that a switch was all I needed to achieve the desired result?
All I want to do is have my Xbox 360 and my computer connect to the internet through the same modem. I don't want to have to power-on and power-off every time I want to access the internet with a different platform. I don't want to switch cables. I want to turn on my xbox, or click Internet Explorer on my PC and be connected.
Seems to me that they should be called "valves" rather than "switches". A switch routes current equally to everything downstream. A valve restricts flow in one direction to allow more in another.
