Elan,
Connect both your PC and Your Flex to the Netgear Switch, they will then talk to each other.  I am old school, and believe that anytime you can get "wire" CAT5 directly to the router, the better off you are.  In my home network, I get 50 MB download to computers that are wired, the laptops using wireless only get 30 MB download.

Good Luck.

I agree with John, Elan, if at all possible, use hardwire.

Elan,
You will need to sent IP Address for both the Flex & the Computer.  They need to be in the same subnet  (Computer-192/168.1.20,  Flex-192.168.1.25 )  255.255.255.0

Hop this helps.

Netgear GS105 is a switch and needs to be connected to a router via a cable or wireless bridge, I have used wireless bridges and they work fine.

Currently I use a NETGEAR EX6150 connected to the same switch and works perfectly.

Hi Elan

Purchased mine on Amazon four weeks ago, arrived next day, working same evening, perfect connection and really simple setup, all running within 10 minutes.

You can connect the flex and PC directly and use auto-discovery. No internet to the PC that way. You can use a switch, too. You can connect a wifi extender to the switch to give network connectivity to the PC, allow assigned addresses to the devices, and still keep hard-wired goodness between the flex and PC. That's what I do. I also assign fixed DHCP assignments to my rig and computer in case the router connection is interrupted.
