Windows 7 Network Map Can't Figure Out Why There is a Network Switch

Hi,

I am trying to figure out why windows 7 thinks there is a network switch in my home network. I have every computer in the house, setup to the same Workgroup as well as the same Homegroup. Can you please help me figure out why Windows thinks there is a network switch in front of my xbox 360 and one of my desktop computers. I am using DIR655 newest firmware router.

Thank-you,

Shawn

This is a common problem with the network map in Windows 7 and it's nothing to worry about. I have the same router by the way.
