Windows 7: Does this network chart look weird?

Does this network chart look weird?

I've been having some issues with my internet dropping for a few minutes at the same time every day (only for my PC, not for anyone else) and last night when it happened I checked the map and got this:

My PC is Josh (wired connection), my brothers is connected wirelessly (Jacob) and didn't drop the connection. I could be completely wrong but it looks like my computer is connecting to the internet through this computer... is that right? If so, perhaps this is the cause of the problem.

This is what it looked like this morning when my dad connected (wirelessly as well):

Why am I connected to "bridge" on that one, yet "switch" in the first?

Right now I am the only one on and it just says Josh-PC------- Gateway----- Internet

It looks to me like the router cap3? is in bridge mode or passthrough mode or the Jacob machine is connected to the modem first then is bridging his connection to the router which is very strange and will cause problems.

You would need access to the router-modem to fix this problem but it should be set up as modem>router set using DHCP>possible switch or access point>networked machines.
