   From where, exactly, does your (mysterious) "the main ethernet cable"
come?

 

   If you're connecting some kind of modem to your network switch, then
that's the kind of result I'd expect.  If you want to connect multiple
client devices to your typical residential Internet service, then what
you need is a (NAT) router, not a network switch.


   Not every device which has multiple Ethernet ports is equivalent to
every other one.
