I kind of figured something along those lines.

You can't change the way it is...it must stay this way. Do whatever you
have to do (get a longer cable for instance) in order to keep things the
way they are.

Here is a solution for you. Note that the <new switch> has ONLY the ISP
cable, and the gateway cable plugged into it AND NOTHING ELSE.

A new switch may cost only about $40USD, but not only will it work the
same, but it will allow you to put the gateway in your other room:

	  <down the street>
	   <home switch>-----------<neighbor>
	<cable from home switch,
	 that also goes to ISP>
	    <new switch>
	<long cable that goes to room
	  far, far away>
	   <room switch>
	      /  |  \
	    /    |    \
	<pc>    <pc>  <pc>	.6	.7

Cheers. I'm glad it worked out for you! :)
