network and internet connection -Not at the same time.
Scenario: 5 computers -wired lan with static IP addresses. New computer with Win7 Professional. The issue lies when the connection is made to the internet via modem on the switch. Network dissapears until I disconnect from the dsl connection. I have read alot of information trying to resolve this, but nothing is successful. I lost my go-to computer tech when I had questions, and this the set-up is not as easy as XP. Thanks

here is how your network should look:
Internet >> Modem >> Router With Switch >> Computers
as you are describing it your network goes:
Internet >> Modem >> Switch >> Computers
which cannot be done unless you are running a layer 3 switch (which basically a switch with routing capabilities).
There is also one other way.
Internet >> modem >> PC acting as router >> Switch >> computers.
My guess is if you dont have a router in there some where then the last config is the one you have set. With out actually seeing everything it is pretty hard to tell.
