    Is it possible for a computer to "see" an internet connection through an ethernet switch? If I plug the cable from my router into the Port 1 on the switch and connect a MBP to Port 2, how would I set my network settings to make sure it is connected to the internet?

    You would have to turn on NAT (Network address translation) on your router and also set it has the DHCP server so it hands out the IP addresses.
