I got a new NVG589 modem installed today. Several ports from the old modem ran to 5 and 8 port TRENDNET gigabit ethernet switches to support multiple wired devices in a couple of locations in the house. With the new modem, the ethernet signal to the switches does not work at all. When the cat-5 cable is run directly to a local device it is fine, but if the cable is connected to the switch, the devices in the switch ports will not register and get an IP address. Any ideas on how to configure the NVG589 to work with a switch? Just don't have enough wired connections without a few switches in my home network.

They are brand new Trendnet Gigabit switches. TEG-S50g and TEG-S80g - 5 port and 8 port. No signal passes through the switch. Worked fine with the old Motorola gateway.

Thanks. How do I confirm the cable is compliant? Is there a reference document? Would really like the extra ports as it is a lot easier to configure the network with the switches in place behind the gateway.
