Question concerning plugging in a router into an ethernet switch?

Hello,for years I have had problems with my nat on my xbox and the only thing that always worked everytime was plugging directly into the modem. The question I have is if i were to plug an ethernet switch into the modem, then plugged my xbox into the ethernet switch, would it be the same as plugging it directly into the modem? Also, if I have a router and plugged that also into the ethernet switch, would there be any connectivity issues with the wireless things in my house?

  1. Just set a Static IP address on the xbox and put that IP address in the DMZ on your router.
  2. I did that but sometimes I still can't join EVERYONE's party, i don't know if it is because they are strict or not, or if it is because I am using my laptop as a wireless adapter.
