modem = ubee
gateway = Linksys switch (which is different than a gateway)
router = Netgear router (which has the gateway)


your modem will only give out one IP; therefore, the switch needs to be connected behind the router so you can have two or more devices connecting to the internet at the same time.

You know your router also has a built-in switch so you can use it for both. Are you adding the switch because you need more ports to connect to the router?

why do you want router upstairs?

with the devices you have right now and to get everything to work in the office and upstairs, you will need to connect the router to the modem in the office and connect the switch upstairs.

are you trying to keep the office separate from the upstairs? If so you will need a second router.
