      Home networking with Sky D-Link

      Hi Sorry if this is in the wrong place but I couldn't find it anywhere else.

      I am trying to set up a home network with my sky D-Link using some old network bits I've had working in the past but on a larger scale but with a BT business 2wire hub inplace of my current sky d-link router.

      I'm no IT expert and the network was set up for me in my old business premises by an IT company now I've moved it home and am not having much luck so need some help if poss.

      What I've got is -
      *2 buffalo terastations using raid 5 to mirror each other as a back up each night
      *pc with sync software
      *Netgear Prosafe 8 port gigabit switch.

      This bit is set up and all working fine but I would like to connect my `Sky d-link to the switch so the terastations can be accessed by any wireless pc or laptop which is connected to my sky router.

      Is this possible? and if so how (in terms a simpleton like me will understand please)

      Connect your NAS drives to the switch then connect the switch to the Sky router using ethernet cables. You may have to reset the NAS drives as they are probably configured to use your old router. If they are set up to obtain an address automatically, they should just plug and play.
