Telstra Gateway Max LAN is blue but no internet. WIFI works

Hi all, My internet stopped working suddenly about a week ago although WIFI is still working. I have a small rack with a 24Giga-Byte Switch in a rack which runs 5 computers and 2 printers. Unless they are connected to wifi the internet doesnt work. My cable Gateway Max shows a blue flickering LAN. All other lights are Green. I've called Technical support who asked me to run an ethernet cable directly from the Modem to a PC and the internet works. If it goes through the switch it doesn't work. I've checked the switch and all lights are on and displaying green. I've unplugged it and there is no reset button on the switch. I've reset my modem. When i troubleshoot the Internet the message i get cack is 'Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration'. What does that mean and how do i fix this. Any help would be terrific

Sounds like the the switch could be faulty even though all its lights are green it might not be connecting devices connected to it to the gateway. Have you tried another switch?

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
